I'm trying to forget it, please.
The Complete Essays by Montaigne.
4. What book do you plan to read next?
I'm a reader who plans a lot, even if time doesn't agree with my costant and hopeful ambitions. I'd like to read before the end of the month at least Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter by Vargas Llosa.
9. Do you have any favorite quotes? Would you like to share a few?
Caligula [angrily]: Enough, I tell you.
Scipio: And how horrible a loneliness like yours must be!
Caligula [ in a rush of anger, gripping the boy by the collar, and shaking him]: Loneliness! What do you know of it? Only the loneliness of poets and weaklings. You prate of loneliness, but you don’t realise that one is never alone. Always we are attended by the same load of the future and the past. Those we have killed are always with us. But they are no great trouble. It’s those we have loved, those who loved us and whom we did not love; regrets, desires, bitterness and sweetness, whores and gods, the gang celestial! Always, always with us! [He releases Scipio and moves back to his former place.] Alone! Ah, if only in this loneliness, this ghoul-haunted wilderness of mine, I could know, but for a moment, real solitude, real silence, the throbbing stillness of a tree! [Sitting down, in an access of fatigue.] Solitude? No, Scipio, mine is full of gnashings of teeth, hideous with jarring sounds and voices. "
- Caligula, Albert Camus
10. Who are your favorite authors?
There are authors that I admire a lot: Camus, Oriana Fallaci, Edith Wharton, Beckett too.
11. Have you joined any groups?
Not here on BL. On GR yes and I'm active when I can.
12. Are there any questions you'd like to add to this tag?
Given the hard scholastic times, I'll re-quote Camus: Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?
These exams are killing me. I don't even have to do it by myself.
It's an universal question, you can't deny it.
The people I tag are:
Everyone without doubt!
