 “But the point is, now, at this moment, or any moment, we’re only cross-sections of our real selves.

One Final Bonus – J.B. Priestley Quote 

“One of the delights beyond the grasp of youth is that of Not Going. Not to have an invitation for the dance, the party, the picnic, the excursion is to be diminished. To have an invitation and then not to be able to go — oh cursed spite! Now I do not care the rottenest fig whether I receive an invitation or not. After years of illusion, I finally decided I was missing nothing by Not Going. I no longer care whether I am missing anything or not.”

― J.B. Priestley, Delight
