“Hurt Into Poetry: On Poetry and Greece”By Stephanos Papadopoulos
"A tart temper never mellows with age, and a sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use."
"We all complete. Maybe none of us really understand what we've lived through, or feel we've had enough time."
"We must read if we want to live, W. says. We may have forgotten how to live, but they — the authors of the books in his man bag — have not."
