Sylvia Plath
“And I am aware of my heart: it opens and closes
Its bowl of red blooms out of sheer love of me.”
Sylvia Plath

Italo Calvino
“Arriving at each new city, the traveler finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.”
Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

Susan Sontag
“Interpretation is the revenge of the intellectual upon art. ”
Susan Sontag

Virginia Woolf
“With my cheek leant upon the window pane I like to fancy that I am pressing as closely as can be upon the massy wall of time, which is forever lifting and pulling and letting fresh spaces of life in upon us. May it be mine to taste the moment before it has spread itself over the rest of the world! Let me taste the newest and the freshest.”
Virginia Woolf
