Quote of the Day

Since it is so relentlessly on my mind anyway, I will now occasionally post up a little random quotation from 2666 by Roberto Bolaño insofar as it might shed some light on my current situation. Today's offering is from page 158:
One of the tennis players fell and Pelletier smiled.


Four Dinners said...

Pelletier can smile all he likes mate.

We all fall now and again.

Thing is....most of us get up again.

That's what counts.

Señor Steve said...

Oh, I could not agree more, Four. Quite right. I myself have fallen down more than most.

I must admit, though, that I find something satisfying about watching an investment banker from New York fall on the tennis court.
