Landscape of the Heart

...But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly, you tread on my dreams.

The word in language is half someone else’s… it exists in other people’s mouths, in other people’s contexts, serving other people’s intentions: it is from there that one must take the word, and make it one’s own.

—Mikhail Bakhtin, The Dialogic Imagination (via wordsnquotes)

Nous sommes tous obligés, pour rendre la réalité supportable, d’entretenir en nous quelques petites folies.

Marcel Proust, A l’ombre des jeunes filles en fleurs

  • Translation:We are all obligated to make reality bearable, while maintaining a few insanities within ourselves.

You meet a girl: shy, unassuming. If you tell her she’s beautiful, she’ll think you’re sweet, but she won’t believe you. She knows that beauty lies in your beholding… And sometimes that’s enough.”

"But there’s a better way. You show her she is beautiful. You make mirrors of your eyes, prayers of your hands against her body. It is hard, very hard, but when she truly believes you… Suddenly the story she tells herself in her own head changes. She transforms. She isn’t seen as beautiful. She is beautiful, seen.

—Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of The Wind (via wordsnquotes)
