The landscape of the mind, against which our thoughts and expectations move, when the wind of the imagination is active, changes as quickly as the clouds; and indeed it consists often of several landscapes, semi-transparent and showing through one another.William Hurrell Mallock
Marina shared a quote
Landscapes, even when their general type is similar, are capable of as many expressions as the same type of human face, and, without our being able fully to tell why, affect our spirits as we look at them with as many moods and meanings.William Hurrell Mallock

Το ρομάντζο των καθαρμάτων by Ιερώνυμος Λύκαρης
" Καλά, αποκλείεται να είναι σύμπτωση αυτό το πράγμα. Ενας απο τους κύριους χαρακτήρες αυτού του μυθιστορήματος έχει το ίδιο, εξαιρετικά σπάνιο επίθετο με τον πρώην μου, και όχι μόνο αυτό αλλά έχουν και το ίδιο ακριβώς επάγγελμα (ασυνήθιστο κι αυτό)... " Read more of this review »

“Landscapes, even when their general type is similar, are capable of as many expressions as the same type of human face, and, without our being able fully to tell why, affect our spirits as we look at them with as many moods and meanings.”
William Hurrell Mallock, In An Enchanted Island: Or A Winter's Retreat In Cyprus

“Was my guide a person who would expect what is vulgary called a "tip"? Or was his position so high that even to offer it would be an insult?”
William Hurrell Mallock, In An Enchanted Island: Or A Winter's Retreat In Cyprus

Karen Armstrong
“Then, as now, there would always be people who preferred the option of devoting their religious energies to sacred space over the more difficult duty of compassion.”
Karen Armstrong, Jerusalem: One City, Three Faiths

“Literature, I have always thought, is in most places and companies a singularly dull and uninteresting thing to talk about, but one may, as a rule, hate literary conversation, and yet at the right moment, with all its powers of feeling, the mind in silence may feel what it owes to literature.”
William Hurrell Mallock, In an Enchanted Island Or A Winter's Retreat In Cyprus

“And with distance in time it is the same as with distance in place. The imagination has its atmosphere and its sunlight as well as the earth has; only its mists are even more gorgeous and delicate, its aerial perspectives are even more wide and profound. It also transifgures and beautifies things in far more various ways. For the imagination is all senses in one; it is sight, it is smell, it is hearing; it is memory, regret, and passion. Everything goes to nourish it, from first love to literature - literature, which, for cultivated people, is the imagination's gastric juice.”
William Hurrell Mallock, In An Enchanted Island: Or A Winter's Retreat In Cyprus
