“Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself.” — William Martin
“It is, in my view, the duty of an apple to be crisp and crunchable, but a pear should have such texture as leads to silent consumption.” — Edward Bunyard

I strongly believe in the sanity of finding happiness and fulfillment in the ordinary stuff of life.
