Quote of the Day
David Malouf Quote

What else should our lives be but a continual series of beginnings, of painful settings out into the unknown, pushing off from the edges of consciousness into the mystery of what we have not yet become, except in dreams that blow in from out there bearing the fragrance of islands we have not yet sighted in our waking hours...' (David Malouf, An Imaginary Life, p.135) - David Malouf
