Posted in random quotes on 27 August 2008 by stephen wayne

“At first we seek to supplement the emptiness
of our individuality through love, and for a brief
moment enjoy the illusion of completness.
But it is only an illusion. For this strange creature,
which we thought would join us to the world,
succeeds at last in separating us most thoroughly
from it. Love joins and then divides.
How else would we be growing?”

-Lawrence Durrell

and cannot be assessed in words; they live on in the
solution of memory, like wonderful creatures, unique
of their kind, dredged up from the floors of some unexplored ocean.”

Justine, Lawrence Durrell
