  • "What is the best way to get an angry kitten through airport security? I had a hard time falling asleep when I was younger, so my grandmother would mix a little brandy into some camomile tea and honey and she would sit with me for a little while. She called telling stories telling lies, so she’d tell me lies. About a boy who married a fish and had to hold his breath just to kiss her. And I’d hold my breath for as long as I could, close my eyes and make fish kisses. And when I think of it, I don’t really see any difference in boys and kittens." - Michael Stewart

I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking. I wonder what great things have come from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind--and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his own expression."
