Delphine’s Recent Updates

Delphine shared a quote
“Natuurlijk heb ik er in de loop van de jaren vaak over nagedacht: wat het betekende te leven, te ademen, te bewegen. Over het bewustzijn dat in me geplant was, en wel uitgerekend in mij. Over het wonder van de bezieling.
Maar ook voor de onverbeterlijke bespiegelaar geldt dat hij het leven doorgaans als iets vertrouwds en vanzelfsprekends beschouwt. Je kunt niet over elke ademtocht nadenken, want dan stik je.”
A. F. Th. Van Der Heijden

Delphine and 4 other people liked Marian's review of Tonio: een requiemroman:
Tonio by A.F.Th. van der Heijden
"Een moedig boek, dat staat vast. Maar ik heb het niet uit kunnen krijgen. De persoon Van der Heijden ging me te zeer in de weg lopen. Ik heb destijds een flink deel van zijn oeuvre gelezen, maar het werd me te barok en bombastisch. Daar besteed ik..." Read more of this review »

Delphine liked a quote
The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham
“...the human race, like drops of water in that river and they flowed on, each so close to the other and yet so far apart, a nameless flood, to the sea. When all things lasted so short a time and nothing mattered very much, it seemed pitiful that men, attaching an absurd importance to trivial objects, should make themselves and one another so unhappy.”
W. Somerset Maugham

J.D. Salinger
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Jack Kerouac
“My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.”
Jack Kerouac

Anaïs Nin
“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
Anaïs Nin

Marilyn Monroe
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

J.D. Salinger
“It's funny. All you have to do is say something nobody understands and they'll do practically anything you want them to.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
