Cranky Large Medium reading, 19 May

Go away.

Why will you continue to stand here? Is it too difficult for you to comprehend the desire I have for solitude? Why, then, are you still here? Oh, of course, you came here for something of great value... my words. Flattered though I am, I'd prefer silence and the solitary existence. Still, if it will get you to leave, why don't I just give you what you came for. Here is your reading, so you will go:
To be perfectly happy, you must find a deep and strong love. More is the pity, it will not come. You are so serious in your thinking, actions and love as to be stodgy and stiff. Reading is your favorite pastime, and you have a frighteningly strong memory as it applies to book time. It's when you display your best social skills, as well.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. Bookishness would preclude that. But you could look on the bright side. At least you're still reading, whereas these people all, on this date in history, turned to their epilogue: Vladimir Monomakh, Emperor Go-Kashiwabara, Josiah Bartlett, Camille Jordan, José Martí, William Ewart Gladstone, Sōsuke Uno, John Gorton, Isaac Beeckman, Peter W. Barlow, Benjamin Baker, Alcuin, Dunstan, Pope Celestine V, Thomas Sanchez, James Boswell, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Booth Tarkington, Ogden Nash, James Tiptree, Jr, Walter Lord, Kristjan Raud, Costanzo Porta, John Stanley, Charles Ives, Jimmy Lyons, James Blades, Freddie Garrity, Ronald Colman, Jonathan J. "Candy" Candido, Henry Corden, Archie Scott-Brown, Anne Boleyn, John Simpson Kirkpatrick, Raoul Lufbery, T. E. Lawrence, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis,
and Coleman Hawkins.

Indian sumthin'.
Happy birthday, anyway.
