"The truth is still matters in a country of pretend"  I saw it on a billboard just few hours ago on my way home, i'm not sure who said it,  I tried to google, but couldn't find it.

Some Nabokov quotes:
<3

"The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness. Although the two are identical twins, man, as a rule, views the prenatal abyss with more calm than the one he is heading for (at some forty-five hundred heartbeats an hour)"


"To return to my lecturing days: I automatically gave low marks when a student used the dreadful phrase "sincere and simple" — "Flaubert writes with a style which is always simple and sincere" — under the impression that this was the greatest compliment payable to prose or poetry. When I struck the phrase out, which I did with such rage that it ripped the paper, the student complained that this was what teachers had always taught him: "Art is simple, art is sincere." Someday I must trace this vulgar absurdity to its source. A schoolmarm in Ohio? A progressive ass in New York? Because, of course, art at its greatest is fantastically deceitful and complex."

“Do not worry too much about misinterpretation, the message conveyed obviously wasn’t thought out properly. Many speak more in code and expect everyone else to be on such dumbness. But art is abstract, as they say, it only has to make sense in the artists mind.”

"I find it hard to see
the difference between beauty and beauty, hard not to see
the skeleton sliding under a man’s skin:
straight femur, the cusp of hip-bone
curved like the place where the fawn nestles."

"Do you return from love
as yourself or as another?
I asked.
It seems there are still women
I have to become
to understand the woman I was."

- Ijeoma Umebinyuo 🌼

"Snare of the shine of your teeth,
Your provocative laughter,
The gloom of your hair;
Lure of you, eye and lip;
Yearning, yearning,
Languor, surrender;
Your mouth,
And madness, madness,
Tremulous, breathless, flaming,"

- Angelina Weld Grimké 🌺

I love Chuck. I'd read anything he wrote. I love his personal philosophy of life.

How much can you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight?
