P1010243The secret of happiness is not doing what we like but in liking what we do.
— J.M. Coetzee

Look at me if you wish, you won’t find anything I haven’t discovered for myself and come to terms with. I’ve probed my depths: you’re free to try too if you want to. Provided you do not expect it to give you any claim on me.
— Andre Brink

Perhaps it does us good…to have a fall every now and then. As long as we don’t break.
— J.M. Coetzee

In my experience poetry speaks to you either at first sight or not at all. A flash of revelation and a flash of response. Like lightning. Like falling in love.
— J.M. Coetzee

The best thing a father can do is die when his son is in his teens. This is apparently the case with many world leaders and happened to my own father. The process ensured that he grew up extremely quickly into a responsible, hard-working adult.
— Geraint Anderson

      Thanks you and sorry for my late answer. I hope you are having a nice day today. I just drove a 2-day trip from Paris to Lisbon. My goodness what a great trip, so many nice Spanish villages and weather plus scenery was just astonishing even if we are in winter on this side of the globe and it’s supposed to be gray and dull. Still ‘high’ on that today :-).
      So finally to get to those quotes :-), i find some great life experience is really epitomized in those sentences. The last one is a bit cruel, no, but in fact I know a few real-life stories where it happened. And those guys have developed into highly successful citizens.
