Dee Dee said: " So I previously failed with "Midnight Children" but many months later I found this book at a very bargain price in a bazaar. I just thought it would be stupid if I didn't buy it, so I grabbed it. So far, the book still sits calmly on my shelf, waitin ...more "

Michael Ondaatje
“American movies, English books - remember how they all end?" Gamini asked that night. "The American or the Englishman gets on a plane and leaves. That's it. The camera leaves with him. He looks out of the window at Mombasa or Vietnam or Jakarta, someplace now he can look at through the clouds. The tired hero. A couple of words to the girl beside him. He's going home. So the war, to all purposes, is over. That's enough reality for the West. It's probably the history of the last two hundred years of Western political writing. Go home. Write a book. Hit the circuit.”
Michael Ondaatje, Anil's Ghost

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Rainer Maria Rilke
“If there were a place that we didn't know of, and there,
on some unsayable carpet, lovers displayed
what they never could bring to mastery here – the bold
exploits of their high-flying hearts,
their towers of pleasure, their ladders
that have long since been standing where there was no ground, leaning
just on each other, trembling, - and could master all this,
before the surrounding spectators, the innumerable soundless dead:
Would these, then, throw down their final, forever saved-up,
forever hidden, unknown to us, eternally valid
coins of happiness before the at last
genuinely smiling pair on the gratified carpet?”
Rainer Maria Rilke

“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
