Daily Dose

From Invisible Cities, by Italo Calvino, translated by William Weaver


"I thought: 'You reach a moment in life when, among the people you have known, the dead out-number the living.  And the mind refuses to accept more faces, more expressions: on every new face you encounter, it prints the old forms, for each one it finds the most suitable mask.'"

From Cities and the Dead, 2
