Quote for the Week, February 17-23, 2013

The damnable truth is we are in really different worlds, on totally different planes, and I don't know you anymore, I only know the you that was.  I wish I could explain the desperate sense of isolation, of not belonging to my own past, of being adrift in some kind of alien space.  It is one of the toughest things we have to bear--that and the primal, gut-rotting worm of fear.
--Farley Mowat, writing home from the Italian front, December 1943
