"Most of us find it difficult to know what we are feeling about anything. In any situation it is almost impossible to know what is really happening to us. This is one of the penalties of being human and having a brain so swarming with interesting suggestions and ideas and self-distrust."
 - Ted Hughes

"Well, the terrible fact is that though we are all more or less thinking of something or other all the time, some of us are thinking more and some less.

Some brains are battling and working and remembering and puzzling things over all the time and other brains are just lying down, snoring and occasionally turning over."
 - Ted Hughes

  • ". . . as I have said often enough, I write for myself in multiplicate,
    a not unfamiliar phenomenon on the horizon of shimmering deserts."
    - Vladimir Nabokov
