“But when a girl gives a boy a dead squid - that had to mean something.”
William Goldman, The Silent Gondoliers
“How can the removal of beauty from a world so lacking in beauty be anything but tragic?”
William Goldman, The Silent Gondoliers
“By day it is filled with boat traffic - water
buses, delivery boats, gondolas - if something floats
and it's in Venice, it moves along the Grand Canal.
And by daylight it is one of the glories of the Earth.
But at night, especially when the moon is full
and the soft illumination reflects off the water and
onto the palaces - I don't know how to describe
it so I won't, but if you died and in your will you
asked for your ashes to be spread gently on the
Grand Canal at midnight with a full moon,
everyone would know this about you - you loved and understood beauty.”
William Goldman, The Silent Gondoliers
