If the swiftest thinking has about the pace of a greyhound, the slowest must be supposed to move, like the limpet, by an apparent sticking, which after a good while is discerned to be a slight progression.
Such differences are manifest in the variable intensity which we call human experience, from the revolutionary rush of change which makes a new inner an outer life, to that quiet recurrence of the familiar, which has no other epochs than those of hunger and the heavens
this is a sample of the dense and vague book I have been in for weeks now
La passion fait souvent un fou du plus habile homme, et rend souvent les plus sots habiles. –so indeed what does that say about our aphorist La Rochefoucauld?
now THAT is a bit more “gently cynical” like the La Rouchefoucauld we know and love
switching to the minor key
maybe even accusatory
haha an early version of “fake it till you make it”
his Hours are numbered!
To be in love, where scorn is bought with groans;
Coy looks with heart-sore sighs; one fading moment’s mirth
With twenty watchful, weary, tedious nights:
If haply won, perhaps a hapless gain;
If lost, why then a grievous labour won;
However, but a folly bought with wit,
Or else a wit by folly vanquished.
Why, is not this better now than groaning for love?
now art thou sociable, now art thou Romeo; now art
thou what thou art, by art as well as by nature:
for this drivelling love is like a great natural,
that runs lolling up and down to hide his bauble in a hole.
this is similar but not the one i want
balls, the internet is being annoying right now!!!
i was following that dude around because he reminded me of a recurring body type that Barry McGee paints and I had never seen a real person shaped like that before!
this above is not the best example but gives you an idea
These photos of our Volta booth with Toby from Vigo London!
I must have uploaded a hundred times and never got them to work until now
I hope you guys got to see them in person during Volta NY earlier this month!
and I will tell you this because we are friends but we sold the Cecily painting! It is by a huge margin our biggest sale, and I am so overjoyed and feel like things are really starting to come together. feel so grateful, humble and proud at same time
indeed it was a false spring and all our tulips promptly froze!
i’m going to DC tomorrow and read on the “cherry blossom report” that the DC blossoms are about to be frozen tomorrow during a cold snap!
this photo is very emotional for me because
i lost that motherfucking hat in a motherfucking cab!! and look how adorable it is
i bought it in Lisbon and dont think i will ever -sob!- find its like again
this photo also betrays the fact that i google imaged myself
“Love has had a lot of press-agenting from the oldest times; but there are higher, nobler things than love.”
PG Wodehouse always helps to break the spell
I think now that I have read over thirty of his novels that he loved humanity but never himself knew love
