I could never rest in communication with strong, discreet, and refined minds, whether male or female, til I had pass the outworks of conventional reserve,and crossed the threshold of confidence, and won a place by their heart’s very hearthstone.

They put us low, and then blame us for being down there and say that since we are low, we can’t deserve our rights.

Quote

I could tell you how many steps make up the streets rising like stair-ways, and the degree of the arcades’ curves, and what kind of zinc scales cover the roofs; but I already know this would be the same as telling you nothing. The city does not consist of this, but of the relationships between the measurements of its space and the events of its past.

Quote

Nonfiction is a kind of magic-lantern show to captivate the minds of those who think it describes or reveals reality; a sort of sweet narcotic to take you to some other world.

I’m making them up as they go along, any section that threatens to flesh them out, or make them “walk off the page,” will be excised. They should, rather, walk into a page, and break up, disappear.
