quote (and one with which I couldn’t agree more right now)

Taken from the Prologue of White Teeth, Zadie Smith

“Every little trifle, for some reason, does seem incalculably important today, and when you say of a thing that “nothing hangs on it” it sounds like blasphemy.  There’s never any knowing – how am I to put it? – which of our actions, which of our idlenesses won’t’have things hanging on it for ever.”

Where Angels Fear to Tread, E.M. Forster
