I am on holiday. I shouldn't be finding so much time to blog stuff, and I'm not sure why I've suddenly felt the need to blog so much. Maybe because I have neglected my blog lately and maybe because I think it will help my writing. Maybe because I think I haven't done enough writing this term and am trying to compensate and keep my mind buzzing, or maybe because I have nothing better to do at night in my grandparents house…Whatever.
The point of this entry is that I was looking through my travel notebook and found some quotes that I had made a note of a while back. They may be of interest…
'...how delightful other people's emotions were! – much more delightful than their ideas…One's own soul, and the passions of one's friends – those were the fascinating things in life.'
'Beauty is a form of Genius…as it needs no explanation. It is one of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon.'
'It is said that passion makes one think in a circle.'
All taken from The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde

I'm going to make this link to Sarah's list of the poetry quotes on the wall in our seminar room, so I can track back whenever I need some guidance. They're good to keep in mind.

Exerpt from a recent conversation:
Siera: Fifty years ago it was Hitler, now it's the Terrorists; these things work in cycles.
Foxtrot: Yeah, and before that it was Genghis Khan … wanker.

Those of you who have been unfortunate enough to have been introduced to THE GAME, may be interested to learn of it's origins:
'They are playing a game. They are playing at not
playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I
shall break the rules and they will punish me.
I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game.'
Taken from 'Knots' by R.D.Liang
