I don't know which I find more troubling: that death is inevitable or that it can happen at any time.

I think I may have figured out something really important in my fencing, but I'm too scared to write about it in case it doesn't work.

Sometimes our reality is actually better than our dreams, but we are too busy dreaming to notice.

I am surrounded by books and yet still feel the need to write another book because none of the books that I know says what I want to say.
