Description:
Marilyn Monroe
“I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night — there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest.”
Marilyn Monroe

Salvador Dalí
“The thermometer of success is merely the jealousy of the malcontents.”
Salvador Dalí

Erica Jong
“Everyone has talent. What's rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.”
Erica Jong

Robert Frost
“Poetry is what gets lost in translation.”
Robert Frost

Emily Dickinson
“If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. Is there any other way?”
Emily Dickinson, Selected Letters

Ivy Cassie, it's so good to hear from you — you've cheered me right up! Thank you. Not so "long-lost", I hope. xo
