She is my morning, she is my evening

September 29th, 2016

Posted in Daily Literary Quote

“She is my morning, she is my evening; we have a love that blooms over and again, more beautifully each time than the last. You will see that we are not lovers like others, for whom love is both a punishment and a gift… Our love has never punished, only rewarded. Such love therein lies the eudaimonic life.”

When I met a truly beautiful girl, I would tell her

September 28th, 2016

Posted in Daily Literary Quote

“When I met a truly beautiful girl, I would tell her that if she spent the night with me, I would write a novel or a story about her. This usually worked; and if her name was to be in the title of the story, it almost always worked. Then, later, when we’d passed a night of delicious love—making together, after she’d gone and I’d felt that feeling of happiness mixed with sorrow, I sometimes would write a book or story about her. Sometimes her character, her way about herself, her love—making, it sometimes marked me so heavily that I couldn’t go on in life and be happy unless I wrote a book or a story about that woman, the happy and sad memory of that woman. That was the only way to keep her, and to say goodbye to her without her ever leaving.”

“In my errant life I roamed To learn the secrets of women and men, Of gods and dreams. I’ve known all the countries of our world, I’ve lived a thousand lives: Many lives I lived in love, other lives I squandered. For in my life I never traveled, All I did was wander.”

I’ve seen daggers pierce the chest, Children dying in the road

Posted in Daily Literary Quote

“I’ve seen daggers pierce the chest, Children dying in the road, Crawling things hooked and baited, Rapists bound and then castrated, Villains singed in public square. Yet none these sights did make me cringe Like when My Love cut all her hair.”
