Uncharacteristically . . .

I find I have nothing to say.  So here are three quotes, almost at random, from my commonplace-book:

Love in action is a harsh and dreadful thing compared to love in dreams.

To write well, to write passionately, to be less inhibited, to be warmer, to be more self-critical, to recognize the power of as well as the force of lust, to write, to love.
                                 -- John Cheever, Journals

You must be an intellectual.  No normal person would say a thing like that.
                                 -- George Orwell, overheard at a party
