How to escape Dostoevsky?

“Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it won’t ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to”

(Bob Dylan in Can you please crawl out your window?)
Bourbon-l’Archambault (F)

Réservez pour votre avenir aujourd’hui

"Sad heart, what will the future bring
To happier men when we are gone?
What golden days shall dawn for them,
Transcending all we gaze upon?"

(J.A. Symonds in A vista)

Winter walks through an open gate

"Some, too fragile for winter winds
The thoughtful grave encloses --
Tenderly tucking them in from frost
Before their feet are cold."

(E. Dickinson in Some, too fragile ....)

Prix et qualité


“All things are created by the Om;
The love-form is His body.
He is without form, without quality, without decay:
Seek thou union with Him!”

I very much desire the mail

Die Post bringt keinen Brief für dich:
Was drängst du denn so wunderlich,
Mein Herz?

Nun ja, die Post kömmt aus der Stadt,
Wo ich ein liebes Liebchen hatt',
Mein Herz!

(W. Müller in Die Post)
