“As for me, I’m only truthful when I’m alone. When I was a little boy I thought that from one minute to the next I could fall off the face of the earth. Why don’t clouds Why don’t clouds fall, since everything else does? Because gravity is less than the strength of the air that keeps them up there. Clever, right? Yes, but one day they fall as rain. That is my revenge.”
