From books I would quite like to be reading. One:
Every time you blink there are ten flashes of lightning in the earth's atmosphere.
Happiness depends on being free, and being free depends on being courageous...But the man who can most truly be accounted courageous is he who best knows the meaning of what is sweet and what is terrible, and then goes out to meet what is to come.
The first quote is from The Atlantic by Andrew O'Hagan, the second is from Thucydides, as quoted by Philip Bobbit in Terror and Consent.
