"One day, toward the end of a conversation I was having with the painter David Salle in his studio, on White Street, he looked at me and said, "Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever thought that your real life hasn't begun yet?"
"I think I know what you mean."
"You know - soon. Soon you'll start your real life."
Forty-One False Starts, Janet Malcolm
"Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans."
Cartoonist Allen Saunders
"This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time."
