Sep 09

F
Travel in foreign lands breaks speech habits and makes you blab less, and breaks the habitual space-feeling because of different village plans and landscapes. It's less important that there are different mores, for you counteract these with your own...

R
Comedy deflates the sense precisely so that the underlying lubricity and malice may bubble to the surface.
A
All men are creative but few are artists.
N
To translate, one must have a style of his own, for otherwise the translation will have no rhythm or nuance, which come from the process of artistically thinking through and molding the sentences . . .
K
It rarely adds anything to say, "In my opinion" -- not even modesty. Naturally a sentence is only your opinion; and you are not the Pope.
