    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    We talked about and that has always been a puzzle to me

    when they know that eighty percent of them are not
    going to succeed more than to just keep going and why

    interested in the things that interested them when

    from English men do not get more interesting as they
    get older.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
