“Take pains. Be perfect.”
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Being born a woman is my awful tragedy. From the moment I was conceived I
“Being born a woman is my awful tragedy. From the moment I was conceived I was doomed to sprout breasts and ovaries rather than penis and scrotum; to have my whole circle of action, thought and feeling rigidly circumscribed by my inescapable feminity. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars--to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording--all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night...”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Donna Tartt
“I had the epiphany that laughter was light, and light was laughter, and that this was the secret of the universe.”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Earl Lovelace
“I was thinking that if what distinguishes us as humans is our stupidity, what may redeem us is our grace.”
Earl Lovelace

“To say that nothing is true is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile and that we must be the shepherds of our civilization.
To say that everything is permitted is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious of tragic.”
Ezio Auditore da Firenze
