Pensée du jour

"Time has reduced her to an essence: as a grape can become a raisin, roses an attar."
Truman Capote on Out of Africa author, Isak Dinesen.


Isak Dinesen:
"Love, with very young people, is a heartless business. We drink at that age from thirst, or to get drunk; it is only later in life that we occupy ourselves with the individuality of our wine. A young man in love is essentially enraptured by the forces within himself."
