John James Audubon
One reason most people never stop thinking is that mental frenzy keeps us from having to see the upsetting aspects of our lives.

If I grapple continuously with logistical problems, I can avoid contemplating little issues like, say, my own mortality.

C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
