Quote of the day
QuentinCrisp-RossBennettLewisPHOTO.jpg  
We think we write definitively of those parts of our nature that are dead and therefore beyond change, but that which writes is still changing — still in doubt. Even a monotonously undeviating path of self-examination does not necessarily lead to self-knowledge. I stumble towards my grave confused and hurt and hungry.
~ Quentin Crisp ~
