Quote of the Day (Thornton Wilder, on When ‘Our Hearts are Conscious of Our Treasure’)

“Suddenly the hero saw that the living too are dead and that we can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasure; for our hearts are not strong enough to love every moment.”—Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist-playwright Thornton Wilder (1897-1975), The Woman of Andros (1930)
