Daily Dose

From Doctor Faustus, by Thomas Mann, translated by H. T. Lowe-Porter


"The coolness, the 'quickly satisfied intelligence,' the eye for the stale and absurd, the early fatigue, the capacity for disgust -- all that was perfectly calculated to make a profession of the talent bound up with it."

From Chapter XV
