William Makepeace Thackeray
“Oh, brother wearers of motley, are there not moments when one grows sick of grinning and trembling and the jingling of cap and bells?”
William Makepeace Thackeray

Isabelle Eberhardt
“Tout le grand charme poignant de la vie vient peut-être de la certitude absolue de la mort. Si les choses devaient durer, elles nous sembleraient indignes d'attachement.”
Isabelle Eberhardt

Milan Kundera
“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

“The very nature of paradise is that it will be lost.”
Melissa Coleman

Mary Oliver
“You don’t want to hear the story of my life, and anyway I don’t want to tell it, I want to listen to the enormous waterfalls of the sun. And anyway it’s the same old story— a few people just trying, one way or another, to survive. Mostly, I want to be kind. And nobody, of course, is kind, or mean, for a simple reason. And nobody gets out of it, having to swim through the fires to stay in this world.”
Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Volume One: 1
