E.E. Cummings
“Whenever you think or you believe or you know, you're a lot of other people: but the moment you feel, you're nobody-but-yourself.”
E.E. Cummings

Nelson DeMille
“The problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you are finished.”
Nelson DeMille

Pablo Neruda
“Then I speak to her in a language she has never heard, I speak to her in Spanish, in the tongue of the long, crepuscular verses of Díaz Casanueva; in that language in which Joaquín Edwards preaches nationalism. My discourse is profound; I speak with eloquence and seduction; my words, more than from me, issue from the warm nights, from the many solitary nights on the Red Sea, and when the tiny dancer puts her arm around my neck, I understand that she understands. Magnificent language!”
Pablo Neruda, Passions and Impressions

John Fante
“We talked, she and I. She asked about my work and it was a pretense, she was not interested in my work. And when I answered, it was a pretense. I was not interested in my work either. There was only one thing that interested us, and she knew it. She had made it plain by her coming.”
John Fante, Ask the Dust

Rumi
“The moon stays bright when it doesn't avoid the night.”
Rumi
