Quote for the day: Longing unfulfilled

"At the breakfast table, I took a look at my father with his round head, his iron-colored hair, his chipper red cheeks, and I wondered to myself--at what age does a man get over this longing?

"The answer is, he doesn't. My father was so overwhelmed with longing that it unfitted him for anything but building martin houses." ~~ Walker Percy, Love in the Ruins (1971)
