“Grouped at midnight around the tribal drum of our mimeograph machine, among envelope flap lickers and bloody-thumbed guitarists, high on cigarettes and Cokes and miserable puns, we felt meaningful.”

- John Leonard, “Confessions of a Structure Freak,” from his This Gun for Hire. Originally published in Esquire, February 1969 (via swartzmark)

„My self-consciousness was heightened to that pitch of intensity in which our own emotions take the form of a drama which urges itself imperatively on our contemplation, and we begin to weep, less under the sense of our suffering than at the thought of it.´´

-George Eliot, The Lifted Veil

Strong women like Virginia Woolf and Frida Kahlo help me to get through these strange, empty days with their art. Just one look at Frida´s painting, just one read sentence of Virginia´s book, and I know I will be brave.

“Libraries were full of ideas–perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”
