9 February


from “The Crock of Gold” by James Stephens

There is a difference between this world and the world of Faery, but it is not immediately perceptible. Everything that is here is there, but the things that are there are better than those that are here. All things that are bright are there brighter. There is more gold in the sun and more silver in the moon of that land. There is more scent in the flowers, more savour in the fruit. There is more comeliness in the men and more tenderness in the women. Everything in Faery is better by this one wonderful degree, and it is by this betterness you will know that you are there if you should ever happen to get there.

James Stephens, born 9 February 1880, Sun and Moon in Aquarius, Irish novelist and poet. He produced many retellings of Irish myths and fairy tales, and several novels (The Crock of Gold, Etched in Moonlight, Demi-Gods) based loosely on Irish fairy tales.

Whatever condition we are in, we must always do what we want to do, and if we want to go on a journey, then we must do so and not worry about our condition, even if it’s the worst possible condition, because, if it is, we’re finished anyway, whether we go on the journey or not, and it’s better to die having made the journey we’re been longing for than to be stifled by our longing.

Thomas Bernhard, (11.8) Austrian playwright and novelist, February 9, 1931 – February 12, 1989. You’ve always lived a life of pretense, not a real life, a simulated existence, not a genuine existence. Everything about you, everything you are, has always been pretense, never genuine, never real.
