"In spite of illness, in spite of even the

archenemy sorrow,

one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration if one is

unafraid of change,

insatiable in intellectual curiosity,

interested in big things,

and happy in small ways."

-Edith Wharton, A Backward Glance

Loved that quote and loved the story of the bananas. Darn budgets! Mine gets me every month too.
