An Unsullied Hour with an Unsullied Heart

"Anyone can buy a car or a night on the town. Most of us shell our days like peanuts. One in a thousand can look at the world with amazement. I don't mean gawking at the Chrysler Building. I'm talking about the wing of a dragonfly. The tale of a shoeshine. Walking through an unsullied hour with an unsullied heart."

 -- Amor Towles, Rules of Civility
