Diomède dévoré par ses chevauxGustave Moreau

Now that exams are over I have very good plans for how to spend my summer. Most of them involve channeling my inner Des Esseintes and staring at Moreau paintings until I slowly become consumed by my own neuroses.

quote
The mind of the mature poet differs from that of the immature one not precisely in any valuation of ‘personality,’ not being necessarily more interesting, or having ‘more to say,’ but rather by being a more finely perfected medium in which special, or very varied, feelings are at liberty to enter into new combinations.
T. S. Eliot, “Tradition and the Individual Talent”

This Oblomov character is so lucky; I wish I could live my life as nothing more than a waste of space swaddled in a dressing gown.
Oh wait.

I miss when the sign-in screen looked like this because now I feel like Tumblr gives no fucks about my returning after several weeks in gin-soaked seclusion.

"I think I’ve got better things to do than to talk to friends and flirt with people, thank you very much."

It’s always so nice being able to add another spirit animal to the menagerie.

Be silent always when you doubt your Sense
And speak, tho’ sure, with seeming diffidence.
Some positive persisting fops we know,
Who if once wrong will needs be always so;
But you with pleasure own your errors past,
And make each day a critique on the last.
Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism
