If we assiduously cultivate our powers of exaggeration, perhaps we, too, shall obtain the Paradise of Liars. And there Raphael shall paint for us scores and scores of his manifestly impossible pictures ... and Shakespeare will lie to us of fabulous islands far past 'the still-vex'd Bermoothes,' and bring us fresh tales from the coast of Bohemia.

Indeed, so far from being humorous, the male American is the most abnormally serious creature who ever existed..

It is not founded on wit or fancy; it does not spring from any poetic imagination.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Holding this book in your hand, sinking back in your soft armchair, you will say to yourself: perhaps it will amuse me.

We discover that we do not know our role; we look for a mirror; we want to remove our make-up and take off what is false and real. But somewhere a piece of disguise that we forgot still sticks to us. A trace of exaggeration remains in our eyebrows; we do not notice that the corners of our mouth are bent. And so we walk around, a mockery and a mere half: neither having achieved being nor actors.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
