"To me, New York is Mama. Every time I've ever knocked on its door—no matter what time of day, no matter what condition I've found myself—New York City opens to me. Smacks me upside the head a little bit on my way in, like, 'What's the matter with you now, you big stupid dummy?' but always lets me in. Clears a space for me. Finds a bed for me. Makes room at the table."
Elizabeth Gilbert, Never Can Say Goodbye
