Things I shot with my mobile phone and quotes I tried to remember along the way.

“Strange to know nothing, never to be sure

Of what is true or right or real,

But forced to qualify or so I feel,

Or Well, it does seem so:

Someone must know.”

-Philip Larkin (from ‘Ignorance’)

(…) if only {the fashion designers} would say: ‘Look, we’re in the midst of a conservative and neurotic period of British history. Our careers are threatened by recession, our personal liberties eroded (…). We’d like to present you with a vision of the future but honestly we can’t get it together. Meanwhile, we’ve picked over the past and jazzed it up a bit. What do you think?’ (…)”

Alix Sharkey, excerpt from ‘Slut Style: going too far?’ The Gaurdian 1992

“The most impressive thing about knowledge is that you stop being so easily impressed.”

Rudiger Safranski in “Heidegger: between good & evil”

Judy Steele (“Butch”), whose yearbook picture from 1975 is on display in Disneyland because she was in the same class as Sharon Stone (‘Sheri’) that year.

“Much can be said for savoir-faire,

but to rejoice when no one else is there

Is even harder than it is to weep;

No one is watching, but you will have to leap.”

-W.H. Auden from “Leap Before You Look”

“The unfolding of the unforeseen was everything”

-Philip Roth
