Quote of the Day

A marvelous little phrase from Jane Addams's Twenty Years at Hull House, said very much in passing, as a comparison with something else:
...that curious surprise we experience when we first come back into the streets after days given over to sorrow and death; we are bewildered that the world should be going on as usual and unable to determine which is real, the inner pang or the outward seeming. (Chapter 4)
Yeah, I've felt that.
