1. "Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep. It starts when you're always afraid.

2. "I'm no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I'm changing the things I cannot accept." - Angela Davis. For all the reasons.
3. I read my daughter the first page of 100 Years of Solitude this evening. That's as far as we got.
