"La derrota tiene una dignidad que la victoria no conoce."
- Jorge Luis Borges

I am studying visual art in uni, and for some unfathomable reason I am here again, plundering for nostalgia. Perhaps I will trick myself into plopping poor, unjustly-taken words down again.

No! - the resounding objections of logic.

(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

"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

Check these people out; they're cool cats (and fantastic writers):
