Quynh liked a quote
The Lover by Marguerite Duras
“Among all the other nights upon nights, the girl had spent that one on the boat….when it happened, the burst of Chopin…. There wasn’t a breath of wind and the music spread all over the dark boat, like a heavenly injunction whose import was unknown, like an order from God whose meaning was inscrutable. And the girl started up as if to go and kill herself in her turn, throw herself in her turn into the sea, and afterwards, she wept because she thought of the man from Cholon and suddenly she wasn’t sure she hadn’t loved him with a love she hadn’t seen because it had lost itself in the affair like water in the sand and she rediscovered it only now, through this moment of music.”
Marguerite Duras

Albert Camus
“The misery and greatness of this world: it offers no truths, but only objects for love. Absurdity is king, but love saves us from it.”
Albert Camus, Notebooks 1935-1942

Albert Camus
“How unbearable, for women, is the tenderness which a man can give them without love. For men, how bittersweet this is.”
Albert Camus, Notebooks 1935-1942

Ernest Hemingway
“The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.”
Ernest Hemingway, Men Without Women

Jorge Luis Borges
“Was it you that killed me, or did I kill you?" Abel answered. "I don't remember anymore; here we are, together, like before."

"Now I know that you have truly forgiven me," Cain said, "because forgetting is forgiving. I, too, will try to forget.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Langston Hughes
“Because my mouth
Is wide with laughter
And my throat
Is deep with song,
You do not think
I suffer after
I have held my pain
So long?

Because my mouth
Is wide with laughter
You do not hear
My inner cry?
Because my feet
Are gay with dancing
You do not know
I die?”
Langston Hughes
