    The faces of most American women over thirty are relief maps of petulant and bewildered unhappiness.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    Really, all things and persons are related to us, but according to our nature, they act on us not at once, but in succession, and we are made aware of their presence one at a time. All persons, all things which we have known, are here present, and many more than we see; the world is full.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
