Things aren’t all so tangible and sayable as people would usually have us believe; most experiences are unsayable, they happen in a space that no word has ever entered, and more unsayable than all other things are works of art, those mysterious existences, whose life endures beside our own small, transitory life.
—Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (Random House, 1984)(via electrichoney)

“Almost any noun is better alone than chaperoned if it’s the right noun, and very few can stand two adjectives.  ‘Unsettled dream’ is stronger than ‘unsettled white dream.’”
—Ezra Pound to Parker Tyler, May 1935, as quoted by Charles Boultenhouse, “Parker Tyler’s Own Scandal,” Film Culture #77, Fall 1992
