"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he's been robbed. The fact is most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old-time rail journey... delays, side tracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts interspersed only occassionally by beautiful vistas, and thrilling burts of speed."
this quote is code for:
right now, life is good
even though it's not full of bliss.
