A Bringer of New Things

I want to read and learn all I can, write thoughtfully and truthfully, live according to reason and ever more mature wisdom, and savor every wonderful little gift of life.

Sunday Literary Quote

I used to do “Sunday Short Quote” posts; maybe I’ll start doing “Sunday Literary Quotes.” We’ll see. At any rate, it’s Sunday today, and here is a quote for you that I just had to share from Tender Is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald, which I’m currently reading (which means there will probably be more quotes from it coming your way):

“Later she remembered all the hours of the afternoon as happy—one of those uneventful times that seem at the moment only a link between past and future pleasure but turn out to have been the pleasure itself.”

Isn’t that so true? I’m trying to learn to notice the in-between moments that I will later look back on as happy and enjoy them while I’m in them, rather than just waiting for the next thing on my mental agenda (though that’s so much easier said than done).

May you enjoy a future happy memory this week!


P.S. Along with more Fitzgerald quotes, you might also be seeing more Monet paintings, because I’m currently having a Monet craze. Things like this tend to happen in February—see my post “A Case of the Grays.”
