Mason Cooley quotes- 20 of
The past is always waiting to entangle and deflect us.
For some, bottles of liquor gleam like the towers of Eldorado.
If you should ever acknowledge my existence, I plan to snub you.
The bathroom scale knows nothing of extenuating circumstances.
Constant talkers are unheard.
Timidity keeps me safe and sad in a narrow room.
Writing an upbeat aphorism is a temptation, but decorum forbids.
Don't sacrifice yourself for me. I will not be grateful.
The doctrine of the immortality of the soul has more threat than comfort.
Our public monuments are memorials to the Enlightenment.
