"I really feel sorry for people who think things like soap dishes or mirrors or Coke bottles are ugly, because they're surrounded by things like that all day long, and it must make them miserable."

...Most have branching tubes called respiratory trees attached to the intestine near the anus. Some species have branches called the tubules of Cuvier that are attached to or near the bases of the respiratory trees and are ejected when the organism is attacked. They swell and become sticky as they entangle the predator. Many sea cucumbers eject their internal organs when they get irritated and later regenerate a new set..

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us... We need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us."

"...Well, I submit that my readers will be mistaken, and that my conviction has nothing whatever to do with the fact that I am under sentence of death. Ask them, just ask them what they all - every one of them - understand by happiness. Oh, you may be sure that Columbus was happy not when he had discovered America but when he was discovering it; you may be sure that the highest moment of his happiness was, perhaps, exactly three days before his discovery of the New World, when, in despair, his mutinous crew all but turned their ship round and sailed back to Europe - sailed back! It was not the New World that was important - it might never have existed for all that it mattered. Columbus died without having really seen it and, as a matter of fact, without knowing that he had discovered it. It is life, life that matters, life alone - the continuous and everlasting process of discovering it - and not the discovery itself!..."
