Quote of the day...

Speaking of "A Separate Peace," here is a quote from the novel that sums up exactly how I feel about the University of Michigan as well as most of the other places I've been in my life:

"I didn't entirely like this glossy new surface, because it made the school look like a museum, and that's exactly what it was to me, and what I did not want it to be. In the deep, tacit way in which feeling becomes stronger than thought, I had always felt that the Devon School came into existence the day I entered it, was vibrantly real while I was a student there, and then blinked out like a candle the day I left."

-An adult Gene Forrester, "A Separate Peace"

"A Separate Peace" could be a powerful adaptation.
