The Book of Disquiet | Fernando Pessoa

"What is there to confess that's worthwhile or useful? What has happened to us has happened to everyone or only to us; if to everyone, then it's no novelty, and if only to us, then it won't be understood."

"In this world
love has no color -
yet how deeply
my body
is stained by yours"

#IzumiShikibu was a 10th cen. Japanese poet. In this 1986 translation of her short poems it's eerily comforting how modern her emotional voice is.

Faibka I‘ve never heard of her, will definitely check out this book! By the way that phrase from Borges in your profile description is one of my favorites! :) 2y
AlfredLordTennisAnyone @Faibka she is unlike anyone I've read. I'm sure you'll be entranced. Oh god, EVERYTHING Borges wrote is gold ❤ 2y

The Ex: A Novel | Alafair Burke

"I get sad every time I hear someone say, 'I don't read'. It's like saying 'I don't learn', or 'I don't laugh', or 'I don't live'...." ~ Alafaire Burke

A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings | Gabriel Garcia Marquez
post image

"Alien to the impertinances of the world, he only lifted his antiquarian eyes and murmured something in his dialect....his only supernatural virtue seemed to be patience."

#marquez is like a floating island: beauty, movement, impossibility. I like his short stories, specifically this one, "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" - alluring and magically surreal, yet wise in the way that only he is.

My greatest desire in life is to have a giant money bin like Scrooge McDuck, but instead of being filled with gold, it's filled with books which I swim through.

OSChamberlain Yessss!!! Mutual dream desire here! 2y
