BIRTHDAY: A birthday present from "S&S"

Just wanted to thank you for the shared and so favourite quote from SM!

I've thought earlier today of the ending of *Signs & Symbols*:

...While she poured him another glass of tea, he put on his spectacles and
reexamined with pleasure the luminous yellow, green, red little jars. His
clumsy moist lips spelled out their eloquent labels: apricot, grape, beech
plum, quince. He had got to crab apple, when the telephone rang again.

Happy 115th birthday, VN!
