"Off to a quirky and enjoyable start, but starting to feel sloggish. Somehow this reminds me of all those J.P. Donleavy books I read in my youth, which seem to have fallen into obscurity and neglect. Sadly, I must say." Sep 30, 2020 10:03AM

William Shakespeare
“The course of true love never did run smooth.”
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“On ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Philip Pullman
“I'll be looking for you, Will, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we'll cling together so tight that nothing and no one'll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you... We'll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams... And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they wont' just be able to take one, they'll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we'll be joined so tight...”
Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials Trilogy: The Golden Compass/The Subtle Knife/The Amber Spyglass

Ray Bradbury
“If we listened to our intellect we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go in business because we'd be cynical: "It's gonna go wrong." Or "She's going to hurt me." Or,"I've had a couple of bad love affairs, so therefore . . ." Well, that's nonsense. You're going to miss life. You've got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.”
Ray Bradbury

W.H. Auden
“Poetry might be defined as the clear expression of mixed feelings.”
W.H. Auden, New Year Letter
