"If you were the type who worried much about the loved ones at home, you'd never have taken up aviation."
"We can't let such an inevitable thing as death stand in the way of enjoying life while we have it."

F Scott Fitzgerald   ::   The Great Gatsby

"All right," I said, "I'm glad it's a girl. And I hope she'll be a fool - that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool."

'Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead'
'You said a bad driver was only safe until she met another bad driver? Well, I met another bad driver, didn't I? I mean it was careless of me to make such a wrong guess. I thought you were rather an honest, straightforward person. I thought it was your secret pride.'

'I'm thirty,' I said. 'I'm five years too old to lie to myself and call it honour.'
