As quoted in the The 12 best Questions to Ask Customers , by Jim Meisenheimer
"September days have the warmth of summer in their briefer hours, but in their lengthening evenings a prophetic breath of autumn. The cricket chirps in the noontide, making the most of his brief life. The bumblebee is busy among the clover blossoms of the aftermath, and their shrill and dreamy hum hold the outdoor world above the voices of the song birds, now silent or departed."
Len says one steady pull more ought to do it.
"True happiness is of a retired nature, and an enemy to pomp and noise; it arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one's self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions."
From East of Eden, published in 1952
"You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough."
