I don’t know about you, George, but I feel seriously underfucked.
Connie, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)
Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.
Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them.
If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life.
A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.
Speech is human, silence is divine, yet also brutish and dead: therefore we must learn both arts.
Thomas Carlyle, Scottish satirical writer, essayist, and historian
