The best thing about the truth is you dont have to ahve a good memory. (Winston Churchill)
He had many good lines.
A famous one was in parliament a lady said to him “if you were my husband I would poison your tea” Not one to be beaten, he replied “and if you were my wife, I would drink it!”
The path to hell is paved with good intentions.
The only thing wasted that cannot be replaced is time!

I have had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasnt it.

[If your fone doesnt ring, it’s me.
It’s part of a line from an old song about a break-up, like, if she doesn’t hear her phone ringing anymore it’s because he’s not calling anymore. Ie, it’s me NOT CALLING.

He awoke each morning with the desire to do right, to be a good and meaningful person, to be, as simple as it sounded and as impossible as it actually was, happy. And during the course of each day his heart would descend from his chest into his stomach. By early afternoon he was overcome by the feeling that nothing was right, or nothing was right for him, and by the desire to be alone. By evening he was fulfilled: alone in the magnitude of his grief, alone in his aimless guilt, alone even in his loneliness. I am not sad, he would repeat to himself over and over, I am not sad. As if he might one day convince himself. Or fool himself. Or convince others–the only thing worse than being sad is for others to know that you are sad. I am not sad. I am not sad. Because his life had unlimited potential for happiness, insofar as it was an empty white room. He would fall asleep with his heart at the foot of his bed, like some domesticated animal that was no part of him at all. And each morning he would wake with it again in the cupboard of his rib cage, having become a little heavier, a little weaker, but still pumping. And by the midafternoon he was again overcome with the desire to be somewhere else, someone else, someone else somewhere else. I am not sad.

What if it was half-filled with arsenic? Then what would the optimist say?
