“To be silent the whole day long, see no newspaper, hear no radio, listen to no gossip, be thoroughly and completely lazy, thoroughly and completely indifferent to the fate of the world is the finest medicine a man can give himself.”
“We are dancing in the hollow of nothingness. We are one flesh, but separated like stars.”
“It’s hard to know, when you’re in such a jam, which is worse—not having a place to sleep or not having a place to work. One can sleep almost anywhere, but one must have a place to work. Even if it’s not a masterpiece you’re doing. Even a bad novel requires a chair to sit on and a bit of privacy.”
All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.
Giles Gilbert Scott
