This Week, Nov. 1

panel from The Amazing Spider-Man: Civil War
favorite songs:
Nessun Dorma, sung by Katherine Jenkins
Sanctus (Canon in D), by Libera Choir

favorite quotes:
There is only the fight to recover what has been lost
And found and lost again and again: and now, under conditions
That seem unpropitious. But perhaps neither gain nor loss.
For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business.
- T. S. Elliot, The Four Quartets

“Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing. Somethin' we was born with. Somethin' that's ours and ours alone. Somethin' that can't be taught to ya or learned. Somethin' that got to be remembered. Over time the world can rob us of that swing. It get buried inside us under all our wouldas and couldas and shouldas. Some folk even forget what their swing was like." - The Legend of Bagger Vance
