Gorgeous and haunting. Called it, though it barely matters. This book does much, much more than you think it's going to when you start it.

T.S. Eliot
“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.”
T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

H.D.
“Writing. Love is writing.”
H.D., HERmione

Catherynne M. Valente
“For there are two kinds of forgiveness in the world: the one you practice because everything really is all right, and what went before is mended. The other kind of forgiveness you practice because someone needs desperately to be forgiven, or because you need just as badly to forgive them, for a heart can grab hold of old wounds and go sour as milk over them.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Virginia Woolf
“Such fools we are, she thought, crossing Victoria Street. For Heaven only knows why one loves it so, how one sees it so, making it up, building it round one, tumbling it, creating it every moment afresh; but the veriest frumps, the most dejected of miseries sitting on doorsteps (drink their downfall) do the same; can't be dealt with, she felt positive, by Acts of Parliament for that very reason: they love life. In people's eyes, in the swing, tramp and trudge; in the bellow and the uproar; the carriages, motor cars, omnibuses, vans, sandwich men shuffling and swinging; brass bands; barrel organs; in the triumph and the jingle and the strange high singing of some aeroplane overhead was what she loved; life; London; this moment of June.”
Virginia Woolf

Robert Bly
“I am proud only of those days that pass in
undivided tenderness.”
Robert Bly, A Little Book on the Human Shadow
