The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller

" Custom brings predictability, and predictability carries its own comforts...
Predictability is one thing, fear of change is something else." (p.g.89)

" The curse of modern times is the preponderance of male hormones in places where they can do long-term damage. Even if we're not talking about wars between nations or assaults on nature, there's still that aggressiveness that keeps us apart from each other and the problems we need to be working on. We have to somehow sublimate those male hormones, or at least get them under control." (p.g. 102)

" Complex things are easy to do. Simplicity's the real challenge." (p.g. 168)
