Sy Safransky’s Notebook
“History laughs as the wind lifts her skirts. It's too late for modesty now.”

“No one is willing to believe that adults too, like children, wander about this earth in a daze and, like children, do not know where they come from or where they are going, . . . and are as thoroughly governed as they are by biscuits and cake and the rod.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Girlie slid out like a hot buttered noodle on that Indian-summer night in October — her father’s birthday, in fact. ”
