It was not solved logically in its own terms, but faded out when confronted with a new and stronger life-tendency.” ~ Carl Jung

Louie and Phil’s optimism, and Mac’s hopelessness, were becoming self-fulfilling.” ~ Laura Hillenbrand

There was nothing to see at all.” ~ Norton Juster , Everything faded quotes
