"Je le vis, je rougis, je pâlis à sa vue.
Un trouble s’éleva dans mon âme éperdue.
Mes yeux ne voyaient plus, je ne pouvais parler,
Je sentis tout mon corps et transir, et brûler.
Je reconnus Vénus, et ses feux redoutables."
— Racine, Phèdre (I, 3)

"Si votre vie quotidienne vous paraît pauvre, ne l’accusez pas ; accusez-vous plutôt, dites-vous que vous n’êtes pas assez poète pour en convoquer les richesses.
Pour celui qui crée, il n’y a pas, en effet, de pauvreté ni de lieu indigent, indifférent."
— Rilke. (via leclubdeshachichins)

"Some are born to sweet delight, some are born to endless night."
— William Blake (via jaded-mandarin)
