Rodin ~ Time

Hannah Arendt ~ Culture Versus Entertainment
Culture relates to objects and is a phenomenon of the world;
entertainment relates to people and is a phenomenon of life.
Hannah Arendt
Louis De Bernieres ~ Falling In Love
When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No... don't blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away... (Iannis to Pelagia)
