"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe", a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstein, 1950
I've been reading library books the past few months (for budget purpose) but I never find those I want to read and my book list keeps growing. A little wishful thinking cannot hurt :
- The Immortal Evening - A Legendary Dinner with Keats, Wordsworth and Lamb by Stanley Plumly: probably my answer to "If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose?". This book has been on my top list for a while now and I'm positive I would love it.
- L'odeur du sang humain ne me quitte pas des yeux by Franck Maubert: conversations with Francis Bacon, in French.
- Girodet by Marc Fumaroli et al. : I would love to know more about this artist, such a complex figure in art history, between Neoclassicism and Romanticism.
- Dante in Love by A.N. Wilson : I expect this biography brings light onto the mysterious and daunting person Dante is but really hopes it remains secular.
