Elizabeth Bishop
“all my life i have lived and behaved very much like the sandpiper just running down the edges of different countries and continents, looking for something.”
Elizabeth Bishop

Susan Sontag
“I'm only interested in people engaged in a project of self-transformation.”
Susan Sontag

Eugene O'Neill
“The fog was where I wanted to be. Halfway down the path you can’t see this house. You’d never know it was here. Or any of the other places down the avenue. I couldn’t see but a few feet ahead. I didn’t meet a soul. Everything looked and sounded unreal. Nothing was what it is. That’s what I wanted—to be alone with myself in another world where truth is untrue and life can hide from itself. Out beyond the harbor, where the road runs along the beach, I even lost the feeling of being on land. The fog and the sea seemed part of each other. It was like walking on the bottom of the sea. As if I had drowned long ago. As if I was the ghost belonging to the fog, and the fog was the ghost of the sea. It felt damned peaceful to be nothing more than a ghost within a ghost.”
Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey Into Night

Susan Sontag
“I don’t care about someone being intelligent; any situation between people, when they are really human with each other, produces ‘intelligence.”
Susan Sontag

Roland Barthes
“I make the other’s absence responsible for my worldliness.”
Roland Barthes, A Lover's Discourse: Fragments
