"I’m 86. And that’s about enough. I’m ready to go."

“Why would I be?”
“Isn’t that sort of a natural condition of living?”
“Not when you miss your husband as much as I do.”
Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton recently installed a window display in The Library Shop to celebrate the release of his new book - simply titled Humans of New York - based on his beautiful site. While he was at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building working on the installation, Brandon spoke with Ruth, one of our amazing volunteers.
Thanks, Ruth, for everything you do here, and for sharing your story with Brandon. Thanks, Brandon, for sharing Ruth’s story with the rest of the world.
“I wouldn’t be the person I am, I wouldn’t understand what I understand, were it not for certain books. I’m thinking of the great question of nineteenth-century Russian literature: how should one live? A novel worth reading is an education of the heart. It enlarges your sense of human possibility, of what human nature is, of what happens in the world. It’s a creator of inwardness.”
—Susan Sontag, born today in 1933.
