I received a rejection yesterday from The Cincinnati Review.

To my surprise, my new computer arrived yesterday. I expected to receive it on Wednesday or Thursday this week. I’m kind of dreading all of the setup work that I have ahead of me. Last night I spend over an hour making backup files off of the old computer.

The changing of bodies into light, and light into bodies, is very comfortable to the course of Nature, which seems delighted with transmutations.

--Isaac Newton


I don’t know what I may seem to the world, but as to myself, I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

--Isaac Newton


Words are sacred. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

--Tom Stoppard

Sorry about the rejection but a new computer is always good. Glad to see you're continuing with the quotes.

The Mt. Adams neighborhood in Cincinnati is one of the best places on this blue-green-white-brown planet.
