‘We live under continual threat of two equally fearful, but seemingly opposed destinies: unremitting banality and inconceivable #terror .

It is #fantasy , served out in large rations by the popular #arts , which allows most people to cope with these twin specters.’

'In each of us two powers preside, one male, one female...

The normal and comfortable state of being is that when the two live in harmony together, spiritually co-operating...

It is when this fusion takes place that the mind is fully fertilized and uses all its faculties.

Perhaps a mind that is purely masculine cannot create, any more than a mind that is purely feminine…'

— Virginia Woolfe

The aim … should be to make works of art — and, our own experience — more, rather than less, real to us.’

A dollar saved is not a dollar earned. That's not how money works. Stop reading coupon catalogues for stuff you weren't otherwise planning to buy. Also, the "discount" is a scam, that's just the price.
