By means of an image we are often able to hold on to our lost belongings. But it is the desperateness of losing which picks the flowers of memory, binds the bouquet.

You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.
Be happy. It is a way of being wise.
A happy childhood is poor preparation for human contacts.
My cat does not talk as respectfully to me as I do to her.
A woman who thinks she is intelligent demands the same rights as man. An intelligent woman gives up.
What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner.
It takes time for the absent to assume their true shape in our thoughts.
I am indebted to the cat for a particular kind of honorable deceit, for a greater control over myself, for a characteristic aversion to brutal sounds, and for the need to keep silent for long periods of time.
