“To burn always with this hard gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life.”
Walter Pater, The Renaissance: Studies in Art and Poetry

“She is older than the rocks among which she sits; like the vampire, she has been dead many times, and learned the secrets of the grave; and has been a diver in deep seas, and keeps their fallen day about her; and trafficked for strange webs with Eastern merchants, and, as Leda, was the mother of Helen of Troy, and, as Saint Anne, the mother of Mary; and all this has been to her but as the sound of lyres and flutes, and lives only in the delicacy with which it has molded the changing lineaments, and tinged the eyelids and the hands.”
Walter Pater

“Books are a refuge, a sort of cloistral refuge, from the vulgarities of the actual world. ”
Walter Pater
