A Quote by Sol Luckman on life, imagination, imaginary, change, parting, leaving, flux, distance, fate, time, crossroads, fiction, past, present, future, adventure, character, picaresque, road, travel, author, writing, luke soloman, and free novel

I didn’t look back. I couldn’t. Such is life, imaginary or otherwise: a continuous parting of ways, a constant flux of approximation and distanciation, lines of fate intersecting at a point which is no-time, a theoretical crossroads fictitiously “present,” an unstable ice floe forever drifting between was and will be. The Adventure called and I followed with my thumb like a character being written by an intractable author. Which, of course, I was.

A Quote by Chenoa M. Smith on love, moments, present, past, future, all ways, and always

When you look around, there is always an explanation of love. This world runs on the love principle.  The past, present and future are all one moment.  There is always a chance to learn about love in every moment.
