“Any life he’d ever heard of, his own included, was burdened with emotions – love, loss, jobs, jealousy, money, death, pain. But if you were Jewish, always there was this extra one, the added pull at your endurance, the one more thing. There was that line in Thoreau about ‘quiet desperation’ – that was indeed true of most men. But for some men and women, for some fathers and mothers and children, the world still contrived that one extra test, endless and unrelenting.” ―Laura Z. Hobson, Gentleman’s Agreement

“I feel no different than I felt at 99, 98 or 97. Just because you live a long time, you get all this attention. Just because you survived? Of course, I survived a lot.” —Bel Kaufman, on turning 101
