My heart has more rooms in it than a whore house.
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
After that dark woman you search for someone who will fit into the irregular corners of your heart.

"My films are expressive of a culture that has had the possibility of attaining material fulfillment while at the same time finding itself unable to accomplish the simple business of conducting human lives. We have been sold a bill of goods as a substitute for life. What is needed is reassurance in human emotions; a re-evaluation of our emotional capacities." —John Cassavetes

Occasionally when a customer in a shadowy restaurant
is shelling an almond
a hand comes to rest on his narrow shoulder
he hesitates to finish his glass
the forest in the distance is resting under its snows
the robust serving girl has turned pale
he will have to let the winter night fall
has she not often seen
on the last page
of a book of modest learning
the word end printed
in ornate capitals?

Jean Follain, Signs

Experience was of no ethical value. It was merely the name men gave to their mistakes.
