A Quote..
"I am not unfamiliar with horror, my memory is a faithful wife and my imagination, unlike myself, a diligent maid who sits quietly all day at her work and in the evening can speak so prettily for me that I just have to look at it even if.."
Søren Kierkegaard writing as Johannes de silentio
