Quotes

on BECOMING

“Je savais que le bien
comme le mal
est affaire de routine,
que le temporaire
se prolonge,
que l’extérieur
s’infiltre au dedans,
et que le masque,
à la longue,
devient visage.”

“I knew that good like bad
becomes a routine,
that the temporary
tends to endure,
that what is external
permeates to the inside,
and that the mask,
given time,
comes to be the face itself.”

From Memoirs of Hadrian, by Marguerite Yourcenar (Cleenwerck de Crayencour)

 

 

If commercials appear below… please disregard. It’s the price i pay for having a ‘free’ blog.
