“If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land”…
(Pablo Neruda, If You Forget Me)
“Living is being happy: seeing, hearing, touching, drinking, eating, urinating, defecating, diving into the water and gazing at the sky, laughing and crying.”
(Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting)
Tell me, tell me, smiling child,
Tell me, what is the present hour ?
‘A green and flowery spray
Where a young bird sits gathering its power
To mount and fly away.’
(Emily Jane Brontë, Past, Present, Future)
…”That’s what I want!
A new shot at life!
But my coat’s too thin, my feet won’t fly
And I watch the wind and I see another dream
(Scott Walker, Rosemary)
