GABRIELA MISTRAL ~ DUSK

MistralGabriela

DUSK

I feel my heart melting
in the mildness like candles
my veins are slow oil
and not wine,
and I feel my life fleeing
hushed and gentle like the gazelle.

G.B. SHAW ~ PASSION AND INSPIRATION OF THE MUSE

in Muses in a Surreal World by
MUSE

* “I want my dark lady. I want my angel. I want my tempter. I want the lighter of my seven lamps of beauty, honour, laughter, music, love, life and immortality. I want my inspiration, my folly, my happiness, my divinity, my madness, my selfishness, my final sanity and sanctification, my transfiguration, my purification, my light across the sea, my palm across the desert, my garden of lovely flowers, my million nameless joys, my day’s wage, my night’s dream, my darling and my star.” ~

George Bernard Shaw in a letter to Mrs. Campbell.

Mrs. Campbell 1865 – 1940 was a British actress; the first actress to play “Eliza Doolittle in George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, which was the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady.

LANGSTON HUGHES ~ ON DREAMS

in Art & the Unconscious Mind by
dreams

DREAMS

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Langston Hughes (1902 – 1967 / Missouri/The United States)

in The words that make sense... brilliant writings by writers... by
Virginia Woolf

My own brain is to me the most unaccountable of machinery – always buzzing, humming, soaring roaring diving, and then buried in mud. And why? What’s this passion for?

Virginia Woolf

JOSEPH CONRAD ~ THE SEA

in The words that make sense... brilliant writings by writers... by
conrad_1434429c

For all that has been said of the love that certain natures (on shore) have professed for it, for all the celebrations it has been the object of in prose and song, the sea has never been friendly to man. At most it has been the accomplice of human restlessness.

Joseph Conrad

(1857 – 1924)
