“Your reading is no longer solitary: you think of the Other Reader, who, at this same moment, is also opening the book; and there, the novel to be read is superimposed by a possible novel to be lived, the continuation of your story with her, or better still, the beginning of a possible story.”
— Italo Calvino, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller
“Summer grasses,
all that remains
of soldiers’ dreams.”
— Basho (1644-94)
