Quote of the Day (Willa Cather, on ‘Unexpected Favors of Fortune’)

“Unexpected favors of fortune, no matter how dazzling, do not mean very much to us. They may excite or divert us for a time, but when we look back, the only things we cherish are those which in some way met our original want; the desire which formed in us in early youth, undirected, and of its own accord.”— Willa Cather, Song of the Lark (1915)
