A thought......

A new thought wants to look about from time to time among the old of its kind; 
otherwise it will die of thirst.

It is strange that one comes closer to the truth only in the words that one no longer fully believes in.
 Truth is a reanimation of dying words.

stories in water, the possibilities of fluidity.

An invented youth that comes true in old age.

To bring back the profound emotion from names.

Wretched the man who knows. 
How wretched God must be, all knowing.

Structures everywhere, the anti-dream to destruction.
Elias Canetti 1967

Learning ........

Learning has to be an adventure, 
otherwise it's still born.
 What we learn at a given moment ought to depend on chance meetings,
 and it ought to continue in that way, 
from encounter to encounter,
 a learning in transformations,
 a learning in fun.

Writers encounter their characters only after they've created them.

Elias Canetti
