About my library"Du musst Chaos in dir haben, um einen tanzenden Stern zu gebären"

- Nietzsche

"Like the dung heap--like the processional phantasmagoria of cloud formations--art captures the life that houses the death at the heart of things."

- Robert Ziegler

Bellica pax, vulnus dulce, suave malum.

- John Gower

A faint, a fitful reflex! Whether it be from light of sun or of moon, sole repercussum aut radiantis imagine lunæ---the glimmer of a vivifying or of a phantom day---may scarcely be for us to know. But never yet has the universe proved smaller than the conceptions of man, whose farthest, deepest speculation has only found within him yet profounder abysses---without, a more unfathomable heaven.

- Frederick W. H. Myers
