[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
'What is man, that he conceives projects!' And there were other projects I toyed with...They dance before me like miserable mosquitos on a dim wall no longer illuminated by the bright sun of a happy time, each of them engorged with a drop of my blood.
[writing: Hugo Hofmannsthal, ]

"Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the universities stifle writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a best-seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher."
