Her night mask has slits in it so she can keep reading even when she's trying to go to sleep.
una delle gioie della mia vita di adolescente consisteva nella lettura: mi sdraiavo sul mio letto con un libro e diventavo il testo. Se il romanzo era bello, mi trasformavo in lui. Se era mediocre, trascorrevo comunque delle ore meravigliose a godere delle cose che non mi piacevano e a sorridere delle sue occasioni mancate. La lettura non è un piacere sostitutivo. Amélie Nothomb
8. MARK #1: Anatta ~ Young Buddhist Monks Learning About 3 Marks of Existence/Doctrine. Anatta means there is no ultimate reality within, no essence underlying existence, no eternal substratum that is truly real, enduring beyond the present moment. This paradox, central to Buddhist teachings, can be summarized thus: The essence of Buddhism is, there is no essence. (World Religions, 76)
“Honestly, I cannot understand what people mean when they talk about the freedom of the human will. I have a feeling ..that I will something or other; but what relation this has with freedom I cannot understand at all. ..how can I connect this up with the idea of freedom? What is behind the act of willing to light the pipe? Another act of willing? Schopenhauer once said: Man can do what he will but he cannot will what he wills.” ― Albert Einstein
