Kate Chopin says:

chopin“I wonder if anyone else 
has an ear so tuned
and sharpened as I have,

to detect the music,
not of the spheres, 

but of earth,
subtleties of major and minor chord

that the wind strikes upon the tree branches.
Have you ever heard the earth breathe… ?”


Carson McCullers says:


” Love is a joint experience between two persons — but the fact that it is a joint experience does not mean that it is a similar experience to the two people involved. “
