" that great clan which cannot keep this feeling separate from that, but must let future prospects, with their joys and sorrows, cloud what is actually at hand, since to such people even in earliest childhood any turn in the wheel of sensation has the power to crystallise and transfix the moment upon which its gloom or radiance rests..." - Virginia Woolf, To The Lighthouse 

 Just a beautiful, albeit lengthy, sentence with a reminder: Do not let future prospects cloud what is at hand, enjoy every moment as it comes. Starting a new job, preparing for grad school, and moving doesn't leave many free moments to relish, but it's all the more important to take in every blessing.
