“It’s impossible, you know, when you think of how variable one’s life is and how peculiar and fugitive the opportunities it presents can be.” He stops to laugh at himself and how mock-Johnsonian that phrase sounds, but goes on. “If you think of that and then try and imagine what you might have become if all that stuff hadn’t happened, it’s impossible to come up with an answer.

Happy National Voter Registration Day, Tumblr.
The number one way of celebrating it? Registering to vote.
Every year, millions of eligible Americans neglect to register, which means that millions of important voices are utterly silent on Election Day. Don’t be one of them. There’s basically a 100% chance that something you care about is on the ballot, something you don’t want to be quiet about.
So be one of the loud ones. Register already. It’s an easy form that you already know all the answers to. No excuses.
Eleanor Roosevelt, a champion of the UN and America’s role in it, once asked, “Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places,” she said, “close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works.”
"But, honestly, you should wrap yourself and be my housewarming present. I miss you!"
