Status: In Progress  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

Nothing can be done except little by little.
Always be a you, even in prose.
It is necessary to work, if not from inclination, at least from despair. Everything considered, work is less boring than amusing oneself.

Any healthy man can go without food for two days but not without knowledge.
I can barely conceive of a type of beauty in which there is no Melancholy.
I have cultivated my hysteria with pleasure and terror.

It is the hour to be drunken! to escape being the spotlighted slaves of time, be ceaselessly drunk. On wine, on words, or on virtue, as you wish.
Inspiration comes of working every day.
Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation.

Modernity signifies the transitory, the fugitive, the contingent, the half of art of which the other half is the eternal and the immutable.
To handle a language skillfully is to practice a kind of evocative sorcery.
