"I wasn’t actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
"Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination."
"But who can say what’s best? That’s why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much. My experience tells me that we get no more than two or three such chances in a life time, and if we let them go, we regret it for the rest of our lives."
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
