  • quotes
    • one should always be drunk. that's all that matters... but with what? with wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. but get drunk. (charles baudelaire)
    • i am not a fool. i have just loved with an honest heart. (mukta singh-zocchi)
    • ᴛʜᴇ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ᴄᴀɴ sᴛᴏᴘ ᴡʜᴇɴ ʏᴏᴜ ʜᴇᴀʀ sᴏᴍᴇᴛʜɪɴɢ ɴᴏᴛ ᴍᴇᴀɴᴛ ғᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴇᴀʀs. ᴛʜᴇ ᴄᴏɴsᴏʟᴀᴛɪᴏɴ ɪs ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴛʜɪs ᴍɪɢʜᴛ ʙᴇ ᴛʜᴇ ᴛʀᴜᴛʜ. (jenny holzer)
    • i must not fear. fear is the mind-killer. fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. i will face my fear. i will permit it to pass over me and through me. and when it has gone past i will turn the inner eye to see its path. where the fear has gone there will be nothing. only i will remain. ( dune, frank herbert)
    • an artist feeds on his childhood his entire life. the shape and form of childhood ... determines the nature of art. but it's a kind of unconscious dependence and connection. (andrey a. tarkovsky)
