You just do that. You just call in some analyst who’s experienced in adjusting people to the joys of television, and Life magazine every Wednesday, and European travel, and the H-Bomb, and Presidential elections, and the front page of the Times, and the responsibilities of the Westport and Oyster Bay Parent-Teacher Association, and God knows what else that’s gloriously normal — you just do that, and I swear to you, in not more than a year Franny’ll either be in a nut ward or she’ll be wandering off into some goddamn desert with a burning cross in her hands.
Franny and Zooey —J.D. Salinger 

Ricky Fitts: Çektiğim en güzel şeyi görmek ister misin? Kar yağışına dakikalar kalan günlerden biriydi. Hava elektrik yüklüydü. Neredeyse duyabiliyordun. Ve bu poşet oradaydı. Benimle dans ediyordu. Oynamam için yalvaran küçük bir çocuk gibi. 15 dakika için. İşte o gün fark ettim. Her şeyin altında hayat vardı. Ve iyilik dolu, inanılmaz bir güç. Korkmak için hiçbir neden olmadığına inanmamı istiyordu. Hem de hiç. Video, zavallı bir bahane, biliyorum ama hatırlamama yardım ediyor. Hatırlamaya ihtiyacım var. Bazen öyle çok güzellik var ki dünyada, dayanamayacağımı hissediyorum.

John Steinbeck’s house on the upper East Side of New York was sparsely decorated—Josef Breitenbach remembers only a painting of the writer’s wife and child—when the photographer visited him there in the early forties. He remembers being welcomed cordially, but with an apology from Steinbeck that he must finish doing his laundry before the session might begin. Breitenbach, newly arrived in the U.S., had never before seen a washing machine, so Steinbeck invited him to the laundry room to see how such a thing worked. Steinbeck was followed everywhere by a pet that Breitenbach found appropriate to the writer’s simple and friendly presence: a large, scruffy sheepdog.
From the portfolio “Ten Portraits.”
