Prospectus for Life

"To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things - machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see man's work - his paintings, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to; the women that men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed."

- Henry R. Luce's prospectus for LIFE, 1936; taken from The Best of LIFE

Something that I accidentally came across in cafe/gallery ユイット in Shinjuku. Really, one of the best cafe's I've seen in Tokyo. I've generally been pretty impressed with cafe's here, but ユイット has raised the bar further.

An oasis in this mega city jungle, both for the quote and the cafe.
