The opium den of remembrance

"In the world of the dreamer there was solitude: 
all the exaltation and joys came in the moment of preparation 
for living. They took place in solitude. 

But with action came anxiety, 
and the sense of insuperable effort made to match the dream, 
and with it came weariness, discouragement, 
and the flight into solitude again. 

And then in solitude, in the opium den of remembrance, 


the possibility of pleasure again."

~ Anaïs Nin
