“The world is always struggling to express itself,” he went on.  “Most people are not capable of voicing their feelings.  They depend on others.  That is what genius is for.  One man expresses their desires for them in music; another one in poetry; another one in a play.  Sometimes nature does it in a face — it makes the face representative of all desire.  That’s what has happened in your case.” – Sister Carrie

“Blessed are the hearts that can bend, they shall never be broken.” – Albert Camus

12-7-10 Wilde (Dorian Gray)

“And beauty is a form of genius–is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation.  It is of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or spring-time, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has its divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it.” – Lord Henry to Dorian Gray, (Chapter 2, The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde)

11-30-10 Duncan

“…A slender body
Soft & white
Is for the Service
of my delight.
Two sprouting breasts
Round and sweet
Invite my hungry
Mouth to eat
From when two nipples – firm and pink
persuade my thirsty – soul to drink
& lower still a secret place
Where I’d fain hide my loving face…
My kisses like a swarm of bees
Would find their way between thy knees –
& suck the honey from they lips
Embracing thy two slender hips…” – Isadora Duncan to her lover Mercedes de Acosta
