current reading VI

"Dropping his visitor's hand, he suddenly stood stock-still, in the attitude of one who listens."

"There arose before him, complicated and inhuman, like a moving tower of instruments and appliances, the monstrous Apparition of Modern Invention.
 He felt as though, with aeroplanes spying down upon every retreat like ubiquitous vultures, with the lanes invaded by iron-clad motors like colossal beetles, with no sea, no lake, no river free from throbbing, thudding engines, the one thing most precious of all in the world was being steadily assassinated."

-John Cowper Powys, Wolf Solent

"Voici les temps des Assassins."

- Arthur Rimbaud, Matinée d'Ivresse

'There are porous boundaries that exist between the worlds that revolve around us and the worlds that revolve within. It is crucial that we continually re-calibrate our perspectives and learn to travel between these boundaries, for reality to truly be experienced.'

current reading V

"For all things bear witness to one another and indicate one another"

- Moses Maimonides, Guide of the Perplexed

"E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle."

- Dante, Inferno

"Everything was in its place, despite the insanity that had mauled their lives of late, and though she hurried him on, he dawdled, his head back, squinting at the stars. There were no revelations to be had there. Just pinpricks of light in a plain heaven. But he saw for the first time how fine that was. That in a world full of loss and rage they be remote:the minimum of glory. As she led him across the lightless ground, time and again he could not prevent his gaze from straying skyward."

-Clive Barker, The Damnation Game
