Patrick started laughing. I started laughing. And in that moment, I swear we were infinite." - Stephen Chbosky

She sounded puzzled and distressed and I began to realise that my question had struck at something deep and fundamental. It was the kind of question that starts a landslide in the mind. I mumbled something about making a joke and that of course one needed tea always, at every hour of the day or night." - Barbara Pym
