The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.
— Ernest Hemingway 
The only artists I have ever known who are personally delightful are bad artists. Good artists give everything to their art, and consequently are perfectly uninteresting in themselves. A great poet, a really great poet, is the most unpoetical of all creatures. But inferior poets are absolutely fascinating.The worse their rhymes are, the more picturesque they look. The mere fact of having published a book of second-rate sonnets makes a man quite irresistible. He lives
the poetry that he cannot write. The others write the poetry that they dare not realize.»
— Oscar Wilde

terrified again
of not loving
of loving and not you
of being loved and not by you
of knowing not knowing pretending
I and all the others that will love you
if they love you
unless they love you
Samuel Beckett
I read a book one day and my whole life was changed.
Orhan Pamuk, The New Life

Le bon goût est le contraire de l’art.
You can never be overdressed or overeducated.
Oscar Wilde
