William Shakespeare

« My eyes see best when they are closed. All day they observe only futile things, but when I sleep, it is you they contemplate in their dreams, and, piercing their darkness, pierce the night towards you. »
(William Shakespeare)

Anaïs Nin

“The sun shines on the duality of day and night, and on eternal love. That which dies in modern man because he is like a potted plant on a balcony, never dies in me because my soul reaches to the other side of the earth, and my roots are infinite.” (Anais Nin)

The snake woman of Nara from the Kaikidan Ekotoba Scroll around 1850

“The sun shines on the duality of day and night, and on eternal love. That which dies in modern man because he is like a potted plant on a balcony, never dies in me because my soul reaches to the other side of the earth, and my roots are infinite.” (Anais Nin)

Arthur Rackham

« Le Poète est semblable au prince des nuées
Qui hante la tempête et se rit de l’archer ;
Exilé sur le sol au milieu des huées,
Ses ailes de géant l’empêchent de marcher. » (L’albatros, Charles Baudelaire)

Arthur Rackham (1867-1939)
