solanumsanctum "...what we want, but a difference only of degree, and subject by that condition to the indignity of a sliding scale and a shifting measure. There are immense and flagrant dangers that are but sordid and squalor ones, as we feel, tainting with their quality the very defiantly they provoke; while there are common and covert ones, that "look like nothing" and that can be but inwardly and occultly dealt with, which involve the sharpest hazards to life and honor and the highest instant decisions and intrepidities of action." #henryjames #1907 #theballoonofexperience #theamerican #thefutureofthenovel #theartofthenovel #writingaboutreadingandwriting 3mon

mybibliofile Hello. I'm actually reading again. It's wonderful. My mind is currently being blown by the last 100 pages of Immortality (as shown by the exploding scribble). Anybody ever read any of these essays by Kundera? Somebody very nice just lent this copy of The Art of The Novel to me. Perfect timing....mind blown again.... #Kundera #milankundera #immortality #bibliophile #myfridaynight #booksandwine #booklover #perfectnight #idealover #vscobooks #igreads #readmore #theartofthenovel 6mon
