You’re like a lighthouse shining beside the sea of humanity, motionless all you can see is your own reflection in the water. You’re alone, so you think it’s a vast magnificent panorama you haven’t sounded the depths. You simply believe in the beauty of the beloved’s creation, but I have spent all this time in the water diving deep into the howling ocean of life deeper than anyone. While you were admiring the surface, I saw the shipwrecks, the drowned bodies the things of the deep.

Alas, everything that we say to one another is alike; the ideas they exchange are almost always the same, in their conversation. But inside all those isolated machines what hidden recesses, what secret compartments! It is an entire world that each one carries within him, an unknown world that is born and dies in silence what solitudes all these human bodies are.

What I need is someone who is something, anything, either beautiful or very kind or in the last resort very wicked; very witty or very stupid, but something. I deeply wished I could make the stars all come down and breathe them; disappear in them, a happy memory is perhaps on this earth truer than happiness itself.
