Rome, Season Two, Episode Nine (quoted from memory)

Lucius Vorenus to Mark Anthony, "I have a message to you from your wife."
Anthony, "What is it."
Lucius, "She says you're cowardly scum."
Anthony, "And what do you think?"
Lucius, "Sir, it's not my place to think."
Anthony, "I want to know what you think."
Lucius, "Is that an order, sir."
Anthony, "It is."
Lucius, "You're not a coward, but there is something eating away at your heart that will destroy you."
Anthony, "How do you know?"
Lucius, "Because the same thing is eating away at me."

Teaching my History of Math class.

Points I try to emphasize. Throughout most of history, almost everybody was a farmer, almost all women of child bearing age were pregnant almost all the time, everybody including small children were drunk almost all the time because the water wasn't safe to drink, almost everybody including kings and queens had several of their children die, the life expectancy was under fifty and doctors usually did more harm than good, a few people had more riches than they knew what to do with and the vast majority of people lived on the edge of starvation, and there were either a very few mathematicians or else none at all.

The good old days.

Listening to a CD of the Broadway musical, The Secret Garden. That story has an uncanny power to bring tears to my eyes.

A joke my son told at the math department lunch.

When they ask Mad Scientists what their null hypothesis is, they don't get an answer. It seems, then, that they aren't really Mad Scientists at all. They're Mad Engineers.

Buying a new monitor for my computer, with a wide flat screen. Wow! The picture is so much brighter and clearer I can't believe I waited so long.
