Art is beauty, the perpetual invention of detail, the choice of words, the exquisite care of execution.
What I write is not for little girls.
Eyes so transparent that through them the soul is seen.
Any man who does not have his inner world to translate is not an artist.
I was born to travel and write verse.
It is difficult to obtain the friendship of a cat. It is a philosophical animal... one that does not place its affections thoughtlessly.
I am a man for whom the outside world exists.
Critical lice are like body lice, which desert corpses to seek the living.
