Penelope Fitzgerald Quote
Is that you giggling away to glory?Or is that just the flowers mingling with the bees and telling their story?
Any foolish boy can stamp on a beetle, but all the professors in the world cannot make a beetle.
There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.
