"He who defends everything defends nothing."
"No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader."
"I love the dark hours of my being
in which my senses drop into the deep.
I have found in them, as in old letters,
my private life, that is already lived through,
and become wide and powerful now, like legends.
Then I know that there is room in me
for a second huge and timeless life."
