Inklust #9: Love

I discovered I am not disciplined out of virtue but as a reaction to my negligence, that I appear generous in order to conceal my meanness, that I pass myself off as prudent because I am evil-minded, that I am conciliatory in order not to succumb to my repressed rage, that I am punctual only to hide how little I care about other people's time. I learned, in short, that love is not a condition of the spirit but a sign of the zodiac.

What the dickens is "Inklust"? Boy am I glad you asked. Here's the manifesto: part I and part II.

Aw dude, you don't need to know french to read quotes from my books. :)

Oh lol i misread. When I clicked on your link at the bottom about the book I thought it said the quotes were in English and French but you were saying you were personally trying to translate them from English to French. haha sorry. I'll give it a read. I've been looking for more books to read and weaning myself off TV. I moved to Sacramento last month (finally got to California lol) and I live by a used bookstore. I was so excited. Its nice to live in a place where there's actually culture now. I could've spent hours in there. Sigh....
