New York City and Other Big Things
The City will test you. You can't live there without changing or adapting, and it's a bad idea to try to ignore its power. The City will mold you or else it will crush you.
-- Jesse W., paraphrased, from a chat at Pinky's this winter. I'm sorry I don't have an exact quote, because it was very nicely stated. I tried writing it down immediately but I didn't remember it and Jesse couldn't re-create it, either. Darn. But you get the idea. Jesse has been in New York City for a couple of years. He is thoughtful and good and will not be crushed.
