“In Gail Godwin’s novel The Finishing School, Ursula DeVane, the ‘teacher,’ tells Justin Stokes, the narrator:

            There are two kinds of people. One kind, you can tell just by looking at them at what point they congealed into their final selves. It might be a very nice self, but you know you can expect no more surprises from it. Whereas, the other kind keep moving, changing…They are fluid. They keep moving forward and making new trysts with life, and the motion of it keeps them young. In my opinion, they are the only people who are still alive. You must be constantly on your guard, Justin, against congealing…If you ever feel it coming, you must do something quickly…

I wish that all of us never congeal: that all of us remain forever fluid.”
