~ Elyot to Amanda in Private Lives by Noël Coward.
- Gertie: Play opens tomorrow. Bring a friend. If you have one.
- Noël: Cannot make opening night. Will come second night. If you have one.
Keepers of private notebooks are a different breed altogether, lonely and resistant rearrangers of things, anxious malcontents, children afflicted apparently at birth with some presentiment of loss.
~ Joan Didion, “On Keeping a Notebook,” Slouching Towards Bethlehem (1968). brainpickings.org
