I love Lafcadio Hearn's reflections and the fact that he writes unabashedly about the supernatural. The fact that he wrote in the late 1800's brings us closer to the roots of the story and perspective that can no longer be conceived by the imagination. He was a genius and ahead of his time.

Quotes Pambo Liked

Lafcadio Hearn
“Times are not good here. The city is crumbling into ashes. It has been buried under taxes and frauds and maladministrations so that it has become a study for archaeologists...but it is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio.”
Lafcadio Hearn, Inventing New Orleans: Writings of Lafcadio Hearn
