THEOPHILLUS
Writing words of pictures showing the human error. And then I like grey and brown. And green, blue, yellow, purple, pastels and darks. But not red.

"Writing is a solitary business. It takes over your life. In some sense, a writer has no life of his own. Even when he’s there, he’s not really there."

"A moment later, I was filled with doubts, and the next moment after that I began to doubt those doubts. To think one thought meant thinking the opposite thought, and no sooner did that second thought destroy the first thought than a third thought rose up to destroy the second."
