First there is this -

“What distinguishes the majority of men from the few is their inability to act according to their beliefs."

Henry Miller.

Then there is this -

"It's a matter of love; the more you love a memory the stronger that memory becomes."

Nabakov.

My favorite authors:

Henry Miller
