Maira Kalman, And the Pursuit of Happiness. (There’s a great roundup of Kalman images and video at Brain Pickings.)

I love this quote in particular: “What can I tell you? The realization that we are ALL (you, me) going to die and the attending disbelief — isn’t that the central promise of EVERYTHING? It stops me DEAD in my tracks a DOZEN times a day. Do you think I remain FROZEN? NO. I spring into action. I find meaningful distraction.”
