“There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?”
Marina Tsvetaeva

“And soon all of us will sleep under the earth, we who never let each other sleep above it.”
