Ovid Quote

Picture Quote:

In the winter season, 
 For seven days of calm, Alcyone 
 Broods over her nest on the surface of the waters 
 While the sea-waves are quiet. Through this time 
 Aeolus keeps his winds at home, and ocean 
 Is smooth for his descendants' sake.  - Ovid

Quote of the day

Most critical writing is drivel and half of it is dishonest. It is a short cut to oblivion, anyway. Thinking in terms of ideas destroys the power to think in terms of emotions and sensations.
