And now, a literary quote.

I thought I'd share a quote that makes me smile tonight. Why not.

I have a tattoo of a black rose on my left arm... the origins of it comes from the character Corwin from the Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelanzy. For some strange reason, when I was 13, I identified a lot with him, and planned my tat from then on out. Of course, it took on other meanings... but I am officially rambling now.

Anyway, the quote that made me smile tonight comes from Corwin in The Hand of Oberon, the fourth book in the Amber series:

"Whenever anything has been mucked up, whenever anything outrageous happens, there is a reason for it. You still have a mucked-up, outrageous situation on your hands, however, and explaining it does not alleviate it one bit. If someone does something really rotten, there is a reason for it. Learn it, if you care, and you learn why he is a son of a bitch."

Not a deep quote, certainly... nothing much in the way of legendary philosophy. It makes me smile nonetheless. Kind of sounds like something I would say.
