"The moral of the story (so far), be careful what you wish for" Jul 29, 2021 01:06PM

J.L. Carr
“If I’d stayed there, would I always have been happy? No, I suppose not. People move away, grow older, die, and the bright belief that there will be another marvelous thing around each corner fades. It is now or never; we must snatch at happiness as it flies.”
J.L. Carr, A Month in the Country

Albert Camus
“The first time that this tribulation appeared in history, it was to strike down the enemies of God. Pharaoh opposed the designs of the Eternal and the plague brought him to his knees. Since the beginning of history, the scourge of God has brought down the proud and the blind beneath His feet. Think on this and fall to your knees.”
Albert Camus, The Plague

Patrick Hamilton
“Too much thought is bad for the soul, for art, and for crime. It is also a sign of middle age.”
Patrick Hamilton

Albert Camus
“He would be expressing himself from the depths of long days of meditation and suffering, the image that he wanted to communicate having been long tempered in the fire of waiting and passion. The other person, meanwhile, imagined a conventional emotion, the suffering that is hawked around the marketplace, a mass-produced melancholy.”
Albert Camus, The Plague

Emma Goldman
“If I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution.”
Emma Goldman
