"Ветер капли росы

Разметал по Дворцовой равнине.

Шуму его

Внимаю, а думы в тревоге

Стремятся к кустику хаги"

"Dorothea had not distinctly observed but felt with a stifling depression, that the large vistas and wide fresh air which she had dreamed of finding in her husband's mind were replaced by anterooms and winding passages which seemed to lead nowhither." Dec 13, 2014 03:12AM

Inna Shpitzberg is finished with Darkness Visible: But one need not sound the false or inspirational note to stress the truth that depression is not the soul's annihilation; men and women who have recovered from the disease - and they are countless - bear witness to what is probably its only saving grace: it is conquerable.

“– Ну, сколько у нас спасательных капсул?
– Ни одной.

Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
“Sometimes thou seem'st not as thyself alone, But as the meaning of all things that are.”
Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Douglas Adams
“POPULATION: None. It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Edmund Husserl
“I had to philosophize. Otherwise, I could not live in this world.”

Anaïs Nin
“The impetus to grow and live intensely is so powerful in me I cannot resist it. I will work, I will love my husband, but I will fulfill myself.”
