The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
“It is in the twenties that the actual momentum of life begins to slacken, and it is a simple soul indeed to whom as many things are significant and meaningful at thirty as at ten years before. At thirty an organ-grinder is a more or less moth-eaten man who grinds an organ — and once he was an organ-grinder! The unmistakable stigma of humanity touches all those impersonal and beautiful things that only youth ever grasps in their impersonal glory. A brilliant ball, gay with light romantic laughter, wears through its own silks and satins to show the bare framework of a man-made thing — oh, that eternal hand!— a play, most tragic and most divine, becomes merely a succession of speeches, sweated over by the eternal plagiarist in the clammy hours and acted by men subject to cramps, cowardice, and manly sentiment.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

“The key questions are: Which mental state would be most useful in this situation? And which version of reality would help you get there?”
Olivia Fox Cabane, The Charisma Myth: Master the Art of Personal Magnetism

“There is nothing new under the sun, just new people doing the same things.”

“As far as I am concerned, poetry is a statement concerning the human condition, composed in verse.”
