T.S. Eliot, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”
Submitted by Anonymous.
This is my very favorite-isttttt part of the poem.
Looking super relaxed a couple weekends ago at Penn’s Landing in Philly, Also: FRINGE!
"Be honest and true, boys!
Whatever you do, boys,
Let this be your motto through life.
Both now and forever,
Be this your endeavor,
When wrong with the right is at strife.”
excerpt from George Birdseye’s poem: Be Honest and True
Unedited excerpt from current neverending writing project:
The question, “Are you okay?,” offered repeatedly on a daily or even weekly basis is a form of entrapment. Unintentional or not, it is the verbal equivalent of adding gasoline to an already blazing fire and then feigning shock and surprise when the embers burst into something unmanageable. Ask the question. Set the bait. Watch the hook snare you in. Eventually, you’re going to burst at the seams and then, finally, the one asking the question will get the answer they’re after: No.
I don’t like to post quotes found online ‘cause they’re usually wrongly attributed, but I can say confidently that this particular quote from Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night is accurate.
Like he was screaming out: “I’m not a bad guy!”
Currently reading TENDER IS THE NIGHT (Fitzgerald). There are a few instances when Fitzgerald alludes to alcoholism—both good (?) and bad, And, knowing Fitzgerald, the person and history, some of those sentences read like a defense of being an alcoholic, which certainly adds an interesting element to the novel.
Fitzgerald = Parts Abe North?

This is amazing.
“The easiest way to appear to be well-read is to socialize exclusively with uncultured cretins, which simply won’t do, so instead you should subscribe to the New York Review of Books and read it religiously, committing to memory one idea from each piece and praying to achieve a casual air when, at a dinner party, fobbing off this insight as your own.”
Or, just pick up a fucking book :)
