Poetry is prose bewitched, a music made of visual thoughts, the sound of an idea.
(Mina Loy, The Lost Lunar Baedeker)
Do you believe, she went on, that the past dies?
Yes, said Margaret. Yes, if the present cuts its throat.
(Leonora Carrington, The Seventh Horse And Other Tales)

“On the outskirts of our sad savage town, I was overcome by a feeling of profound melancholy,
though I fought it off by stuffing a large amount of jasmine essence up my nose.”
