"It is better to fail in originality, 
than to succeed in imitation."

Friday, June 02, 2017

"The observations and encounters of a solitary, taciturn man are vaguer and at the same times more intense than those of a sociable man ; his thoughts are deeper, odder, and never without a touch of sadness. 
Images and perceptions, that could be dismissed with a glance, a laugh, an exchange of opinions, occupy him unduly, become more intense with the silence, become significant , 
become an adventure, an emotion.
Solitude produces originality,
bold and astonishing beauty, poetry... " 

-THOMAS MANN "Death in Venice", 1912.
