I pledged myself to smoke but one cigar a day. I kept the cigar waiting until bedtime, then I had a luxurious time with it. But desire persecuted me every day and all day long. I found myself hunting for larger cigars…within the month my cigar had grown to such proportions I could have used it as a crutch.
Bedtime is truly one of my favorite times.

Many childrens writers dont have children of their own
I don’t remember my father reading to me, but I remember him telling me bedtime stories. I got to pick what was in them, and then he’d make them up.
The worst thing in the world is to try to sleep and not to.
My family fled Iran in October 1978 as a result of the coming revolution when I was two years old.

The spark for ‘In Praise of Slowness‘ came when I began reading to my children. Every parent knows that kids like their bedtime stories read at a gentle, meandering pace.

My bedtime was 8 P.M. But on Cosby nights, I got to stay up until 8:30. Real big deal. This is when they could afford to do a completely different title sequence in TV every year.

Laugh and the world laughs with you!

Now I read in bed. I read at work. I read standing in line. It’s like, ‘Hello, my name is Nathan and I am a reader.’
The worst thing in the world is to be bland.
