About meI'm in my 30s and live in south-western Sydney, Australia. Thanks to LibraryThing, I've been discovering some of the great books of the world and discussing them with intelligent people.


He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. - Nietzsche


My own heart let me have more have pity on; let
Me live to my sad self hereafter kind,
Charitable; not live this tormented mind
With this tormented mind tormenting yet.
I cast for comfort I can no more get
By groping round my comfortless, than blind
Eyes in their dark can day or thirst can find
Thirst's all-in-all in all a world of wet.

Soul, self; come, poor Jackself, I do advise
You, jaded, let be; call off thoughts awhile
Elsewhere; leave comfort root-room; let joy size
At God knows when to God knows what; whose smile
’s not wrung, see you; unforeseen times rather—as skies
Betweenpie mountains—lights a lovely mile.
. . . . . . . . . Gerard Manly Hopkins
