Taken the moment the dragon is slain.


quote #37

He took two steps at a time but slowly, holding on to the banister, putting his
whole body into it, as if the act of climbing a flight of stairs was for him, as it
is for many children, a moderately pleasurable end in itself.

quote #36

Perfection Wasted

And another regrettable thing about death
is the ceasing of your own brand of magic,
which took a whole life to develop and market—
the quips, the witticisms, the slant
adjusted to a few, those loved ones nearest
the lip of the stage, their soft faces blanched
in the footlight glow, their laughter close to tears,
their tears confused with their diamond earrings,
their warm pooled breath in and out with your heartbeat,
their response and your performance twinned.
The jokes over the phone. The memories packed
in the rapid-access file. The whole act.
Who will do it again? That's it; no one;
imitators and descendants aren't the same.

John Updike
