Go where you are known best

– Quentin Crewe

If we are victorious in one more battle … we shall be utterly ruined.


Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love. Why, then, O brawling love. O loving hate. O any thing, of nothing first create. O heavy lightness, serious vanity. Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms. Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health. Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is! This love feel I, that feel no love in this.

Dost thou not laugh?

– William Shakespeare

“Do you want this to last forever? Then rock with me.”

Usher, 2013.

“Elaine Paige, something like that.”

Susan Boyle, 2009.

Fantasy is what people want, but reality is what they need.

Lauryn Hill, MTV Unplugged, 2002.

Nostalgia – it’s delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound.” It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel, it’s called the carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels – around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know we are loved.

– Donald Draper in ‘The Wheel’. Mad Men, 2007.

“I am at war with the obvious.”

William Eggleston.
