Bonus Quote: “A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh.

They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.”
