Manu’s Reading, New York, NY “A great sorrow, and one that I am only beginning to understand: we don’t get to choose our own hearts. We can’t make ourselves want what’s good for us or what’s good for other people. We don’t get to choose the people we are.” ― Donna Tartt,  The Goldfinch (2013)

Happy days are here again, 
The skies above are clear again 
Let us sing a song of cheer again 
Happy days are here again,

Altogether shout it now 
There’s no one who can doubt it now 
So let’s tell the world about it now 
Happy days are here again, 

Your cares and troubles are gone 
They’re be no more from now on 
Happy days are here again, 
The skies above are clear again 

Let us sing a song of cheer again 
Happy days are here again,

So long sad time, so long bad time 
We are rid of you at last 
Howdy gay times, cloudy gray times 
You are now a thing of the past 

Happy days are here again, 
The skies above are clear again 
Let us sing a song of cheer again 
Happy days are here again,

Altogether shout it now 
There’s no one who can doubt it now 
So let’s tell the world about it now 
Happy days are here again, 

Your cares and troubles are gone 
They’re be no more from now on 
Happy days are here again, 
The skies above are clear again 

Let us sing a song of cheer again 
Happy days are here again, 
Happy days are here again, 
The skies above are clear again 

Let us sing a song of cheer again 
Happy days are here again

- Milton Ager (1929)

“Caring too much for objects can destroy you. Only—if you care for a thing enough, it takes on a life of its own, doesn’t it? And isn’t the whole point of things—beautiful things—that they connect you to some larger beauty?” ― Donna Tartt,  The Goldfinch (2013)

It is for this reason that most of us would rather love than be loved. Almost everyone wants to be the lover. And the curt truth is that, in a deep secret way, the state of being beloved is intolerable to many. The beloved fears and hates the lover, and with the best of reasons. For the lover is forever trying to strip bare his beloved. The lover craves any possible relation with the beloved, even if this experience can cause him only pain.” ― Carson McCullers, The Ballad of the Sad Café (1951)
