    William Ayers, U.S. author. To Teach: The Journey of a Teacher, ch. 7 (1993)

    A restaurant is a fantasy—a kind of living fantasy in which diners are the most important members of the cast.

    In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
