Fim de Semana - Weekend

A few quotes that took us through the weekend.

Strange to see how a good dinner and feasting reconciles everybody.
--Samuel Pepys
(Even if your lightweight wife drinks a few sips of wine (too many) and thinks her domestic tales are funny.)

I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
--Tenessee Williams
(And it is an even nicer feeling to reciprocate.)

Life comes in clusters, clusters of solitude, then a cluster when there is hardly time to breathe.
--May Sarton
(The holiday season is upon us.)

There is no closeness in human life like the closeness between a mother and her baby.
--Susan Cheever
(Little G has a really insistent horrible cough that takes her breath away. I spent the night with my hand on her chest, feeling her breathing and curled like a cat at the edge of a small bed, smelling the vicks vapor rub on her feet.)

Every husband needs a nagging wife.
--Olufemi Fasanya
(I don't know if mine would agree this Monday morning.)

Hope your weekends weren't too busy to enjoy a silent moment, to notice an act of kindness, or to catch up with a friend you haven't seen in a while.
