Between our birth and death we may touch understanding, As a moth brushes a window with its wing.

I travel light; as light, / That is, as a man can travel who will / Still carry his body around because / Of its sentimental value.

In tragedy every moment is eternity; in comedy, eternity is a moment.

Always fornicate / Between clean sheets and spit on a well-scrubbed floor.

What after all Is a halo? It's only one more thing to keep clean.
