Once upon a time...


"She was beautiful, but she was beuatiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful"
(Neil Gaiman)





"A lady is one who never shows her underwear unintentionally"
(Lillian Day.)



In the increasingly convincing darkness, the words become palpable, like a fruit, that is too beautiful to eat. John Ashbery



There’s an anger to everything in our culture right now. And I’m sort of ready for a kind of sweetness and a softness to things. Tom Ford



"One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving"
(Paolo Coelho.)






Those faces you see every day on the streets were not created entirely without hope. Be kind to them: like you they have not escaped. Charles Bukowski 



All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own. Johann von Goethe




"Let heart firmly connect heart…” 
 (Mang Ke.)










"The only real valuable thing is intuition." (Einstein.)






"Understood in its metaphysical sense, Beauty is one of the manifestations of the Absolute Being. Emanating from the harmonious rays of the Divine plan, it crosses the intellectual plane to shine once again across the natural plane, where it darkens into matter."
(Jean Delville.)






"Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better"
(Andre Gide.)



"Little fish, big fish swimming in the water,
Come back here man gimme my daughter"
(Down By The Water by PJ Harvey.)







 










'I was perched outside in the pouring rain
Trying to make myself a sail
Then I’ll float to you my darlin’
With the evening on my tail

Although not the most honest means of travel
It gets me there nonetheless
I’m a heartless man at worst, babe
And a helpless one at best

Darling I’ll bathe your skin
I’ll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy, before I go

Oh, darling I’ll kiss your eyes
And lay you down on your rug
Just give me some candy
After my hug

Oh I’m often false explaining
But to her it plays out all the same
and although I’m left defeated
It get’s held against my name

I know you got plenty to offer baby
But I guess I’ve taken quite enough
Well I’m some stain there on your bedsheet
You’re my diamond in the rough

Darling I’ll bathe your skin
I’ll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy
before I go

Oh, darling I’ll kiss your eyes
And lay you down on your rug
Just give me some candy
After my hug
Oh I’ll be there waiting for you...'

(Candy by Paolo Nutini.)
