❝ My father used to say, “Don’t raise your voice. Improve your argument.

❝ I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.
— Helena Bonham Carter
❝ First we feel. Then we fall.
— James Joyce, Finnegans Wake

❝ I have sea foam in my veins, for I understand the language of waves.
— Le Testament d’Orphee, film written and directed by Jean Cocteau (1960)
❝ I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.
— Brian Andreas, Story People
