Personal Quote:

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.



Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.

Personal Quote:

And your very flesh shall be a great poem.
Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.
Be curious, not judgmental.


Leaves of Grass

Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.

Personal Quote:

How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?
It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.
Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius.


The Hound of the Baskervilles

“Really, Watson, you excel yourself,” said Holmes, pushing back his chair and lighting a cigarette. “I am bound to say that in all the accounts which you have been so good as to give of my own small achievements you have habitually underrated your own abilities. It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it. I confess, my dear fellow, that I am very much in your debt.”

Personal Quote:

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.


The Sun Also Rises

You’re an expatriate. You’ve lost touch with the soil. You get precious. Fake European standards have ruined you. You drink yourself to death. You become obsessed with sex. You spend all your time talking, not working. You are an expatriate, see? You hang around cafes.

Personal Quote:

I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees.
Love is so short, forgetting is so long.
You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.


Sonnet XVII

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

Personal Quote:

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
It is not down in any map; true places never are.
To the last, I grapple with thee; From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee; For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee. 

Moby Dick, Chapter 16, pg. 67

‘He’s a grand, ungodly, god-like man, Captain Ahab; doesn’t speak much; but, when he does speak, then you may well listen. Mark ye, be forewarned; Ahab’s above the common; Ahab’s been in colleges, as well as ‘mong the cannibals; been used to deeper wonders than the waves; fixed his fiery lance in mightier, stranger foes than whales.’

Personal Quote:

Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down.
Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.
You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.


Fahrenheit 451

“Why is it,” he said, one time, at the subway entrance, “I feel I’ve known you so many years?”
“Because I like you,” she said, “and I don’t want anything from you.”

Personal Quote:

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear. And the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.
That is not dead which can eternal lie And with strange aeons even death may die.


The Call of Cthulhu 

Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.

In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.
