Thought for the day

"[W]hen once you have taken the Impossible into your calculations its possibilities become practically limitless."

Saki did not mean this in an inspirational, motivating sort of way.

* p. 189 The Complete Saki (Penguin)

The book is due back at the library soon. I am reading at such a languid pace, it may take me all year to finish. Only 700 pages to go.

Why am I not outside enjoying the beautiful weather and the late sunset? Because I am inside finding 1,001 ways to avoid studying for tomorrow's exam. My final final of the term. I just want to get it over with, but since I can't take it this instant, I am obligated to fill the intervening time with studying.
