iris-murdoch-1Two quotes today, because I couldn’t decide. You choose:

“Happiness is a matter of one’s most ordinary and everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self.”

and this one:

“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”


— Dame Iris Murdoch, born on this date in 1919
