A collection of various quotes and phrases that have made an impression on me.
I will bring you happy flowers from the mountains, bluebells,
dark hazels, and rustic baskets of kisses.
I want to do with you what spring does to the cherry trees.
Pablo Neruda, Every Day You Play
I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight.
William Shakespeare, A Midnight Summer’s Dream
The ego is a veil between humans and God.
There’s scarcely any passion without struggle.
I watched you with all the light and darkness I have.
An invisible net restrains the sound that put many truths to sleep. Doubt slips amid
the oranges of its late afternoon. A mouth blows carefree. Its festival makes desired
surfaces shine. A man can even believe in himself. He can feel the presence of pleasure
even in the pupils of his eyes.
Of his eyes that flow down the back of love. And they find their virginal lewdness
within the diaphanous coolness of my most nocturnal verdancy.
What matters is precisely this; the unspoken at the edge of the spoken.
Her heart was made of liquid sunsets.
To witness two lovers is a spectacle for the gods.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
