Thoughts that keep me up at night

A collection of my recent and past favorite books, and a few quotations.

extract from Fern Hill by Dylan Thomas


Der Steppenwolf . Hermann Hesse ___ "Harry besteht nicht aus zwei Wesen, sondern aus hundert, aus Tausenden." / "Harry consists of a hundred or a thousand selves, not two."

George Bernard Shaw (July 26, 1856 - 1950), the eminent Irish playwright, is the only person to have been awarded both the Nobel Prize for Literature (1925) and an Oscar (1938), for his contributions to literature and for his work on the film Pygmalion, respectively. “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― GBS, Man & Superman Photo by Sir Emery Walker, 1888.

The Tempest - William Shakespeare "Full fathom five thy father lies; Of his bones are coral made; Those are pearls that were his eyes"

The Tempest, Prospero.

The Passion - Jeanette Winterson

Life isn’t something you accomplish. It’s something you live. Awards are lovely –they are like people cheering during a marathon – they encourage you, and I can’t say I don’t get a thrill out of them – but it’s not why you’re running. As human beings, I think we have a built-in desire to see what’s around the next corner – whatever it may be. Or what’s inside people – because people are not limited to their outside casings, though they are sometimes limited by them.
