Today’s STATUS QUOtes


“Irony is just honesty with the volume cranked up.” — George Saunders

“Today, we turn to one person to provide what an entire village once did: a sense of grounding, meaning, and continuity. At the same time, we expect our committed relationships to be romantic as well as emotionally fulfilling. Is it any wonder that so many relationships crumble under the weight of it all?” — Esther Perel

“If you cannot mould yourself as you would wish, how can you expect other people to be entirely to your liking?” — Thomas Kempis

“Some people are widely read – I’m thinly read.” — Eddie Izzard



I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.
— Marlene Dietrich —
