I love art; every piece is like the author's portrait, and isn't it marvelous to find someone whose portrait is a mirror where you can directly look into your being?|
I am an artist and a pianist. I am a vegan. I am an agnostic atheist. I like languages (I currently speak English and Spanish, and I'm learning Italian, Japanese and Russian). I love all kinds of music.
'Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable'
'I see everyone and no one in myself'
'I don’t care about anyone, and the feeling is quite obviously mutual.'
'To the person in the bell jar, blank and stopped as a dead baby, the world itself is a bad dream'
'I am still so naïve; I know pretty much what I like and dislike; but please, don’t ask me who I am. A passionate, fragmentary girl, maybe?'
'I felt very still and empty, the way the eye of a tornado must feel, moving dully along in the middle of the surrounding hullabaloo'
'But when it came right down to it, the skin of my wrist looked so white and defensless that I couldn't do it. It was as if what I wanted to kill wasn't in that skin or the thin blue pulse that jumped under my thumb, but somewhere else, deeper, more secret, and a whole lot harder to get'
'I do not love; I do not love anybody except myself. That is a rather shocking thing to admit. I have none of the selfless love of my mother. I have none of the plodding, practical love. . . . . I am, to be blunt and concise, in love only with myself, my puny being with its small inadequate breasts and meager, thin talents. I am capable of affection for those who reflect my own world'
'If you love her, I said, "you'll love somebody else someday”'
