QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“From at least the age of six, romantic longing – Sehnsucht – had played an unusually central part in my experience. Such longing is in itself the very reverse of wishful thinking: it is more like thoughtful wishing. But it throws off what may be called systems of imagery.”
Preface to Dymer (1950 Edition)
