Erik Pevernagie

Robert Walser
“My cheeks are red hot,
my lip still trembles,
because I sent my heart
to speak; every word of it
delusional and awkward,
an exuberance, an abrupt sound.
That's how I spoke, oh, it still
shows on my hot cheeks
I'm now carrying home.
I look down at the snow
and walk past many houses,
past many hedges, many trees,
the snow adorns hedge, tree and house.
I walk on, staring down
at the snow, on my cheeks
nothing but red-hot memory
reminding me of my wild talk.”
Robert Walser, Oppressive Light: Selected Poems by Robert Walser

“The longing for peace has essentially come from troubled minds, minds that are torturing themselves. For them, peace is a big commodity that they have to seek. If you are not using your mind for self-torture, why would you think of peace? Would you seek the exuberance of life or would you seek peace? Only if you have become an expert in self-torture, peace seems to be the greatest thing.”
Jaggi Vasudev, Of Mystics & Mistakes

J.M. Coetzee
“To be full of being is to live as a body-soul. One name for the experience of full being is joy.”
J.M. Coetzee, The Lives of Animals

Shannon  Mullen
“My mind feels like a race car on the track, getting faster and faster every time I pause to think or blink or try to focus on anything. Nothing can keep up to it, not the other cars, not my body, not anyone else in the bar. It’s a rush, pure exhilaration, and I’m having the time of my life. But instead of driving, I’m in the passenger seat, along for the ride, watching myself race around the track from my barstool.”
Shannon M Mullen, See What Flowers

Vijaya Gowrisankar
“Your exuberance, passion,
mesmerizing voice,
animated actions,
and eyes full of dreams
captured my attention
so completely,
that I didn't feel
the bitter taste of coffee”
Vijaya Gowrisankar

John Kenneth Galbraith
“The recurrent and sadly erroneous belief that effortless enrichment is an entitlement associated with what is thought to be exceptional financial perspicacity and wisdom is not something that yields to legislative remedy.”
John Kenneth Galbraith, A Short History of Financial Euphoria

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Someone one said, ‘I just wanna lay me down and die,’ which implies that they’re currently doing neither. But that doesn’t mean that they’re not living as if they are.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

L.A. Kragie
“Jaunting off together towards the bedroom doorway, they cast off their clothes, like caps at graduation.”
L.A. Kragie, Vampire Chimeras

Patrick Leigh Fermor
“I lay in one of those protracted moments of rapture which scatter this journey like asteriks. A little more, I felt, and I would have gone up like a rocket.”
Patrick Leigh Fermor

Lauren Groff, Arcadia
