"La derrota tiene una dignidad que la victoria no conoce."
- Jorge Luis Borges
Working on a story about a sad centaur, which has presently brought me back to writing. Hopefully my enthusiasm for it will stay long enough for me to post something of worth. We shall see, ha.
(Also, I do covers for free! If anyone is interested, I have a cover portfolio at the bottom of my profile wherein one can view various examples. Requests can be left on my message board/my inbox.)
"The awful thing is that beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and the devil are fighting there and the battlefield is the heart of man."
- Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
"As things stand now, I am going to be a writer. I'm not sure that I'm going to be a good one or even a self-supporting one, but until the dark thumb of fate presses me to the dust and says 'you are nothing', I will be a writer."
- Hunter S. Thompson
"I am well aware that I have always been of an inferior race. I cannot understand revolt. My race has never risen, except to plunder: to devour like wolves a beast they did not kill."
- Arthur Rimbaud
“You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole.”
- Warsan Shire
"And me on a buckskin pony with eyes like blue electricity and a mane like tangled fire, galloping up the hill and right off into the high heaven of the world."
- William Faulkner, Carcassone
