I love love and truth and beauty, god willing that mine eyes and my spirit and heart can recognize them as they unfold before all of us in the darkest and quietest and kindest of ways. I love all forms of art and truth-seeking, verbal and otherwise. I am a book man first and foremost, although I love music and painting, sculpture, woodwork, drawings, everything in which a human is honest in making something to endure. I am particularly interested in: Faulkner, the Romantic poets, Nietzsche, Rilke, Dostoevsky, Melville, van Gogh, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Conrad, Tolstoy, Camus, Keats, T.S. Eliot, W. Stevens, Whitman, and many others. Please drop me a message if you are interested in exchanging book or movie or album titles, anything, dear friends brothers sisters and all.

If you couldn't already guess, Faulkner is my all-time favorite writer.

You’re sorry that the ephemeral beauty has faded so rapidly, so irretrievably, that it flashed so deceptively and pointlessly before your eyes—you’re sorry, for you didn’t even have time to fall in love.

— Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes From Underground (via the-beauty-in-chaos-quotes)

I love how this was a convention: love a book? Love it an send it to others so they can love it.
