My love for my father has never been touched or approached by any other love. I hold him in my heart of hearts as a man apart from all other men, as one apart from all other beings.
I have been spoken of as my father's 'favorite daughter.' If he had a favorite daughter — and I hope and believe that the one was as dear to him as the other — my dear sister must claim that honor.
Quote of the day
For me writing is a question of finding a certain rhythm. I compare it to the rhythms of jazz. Much of the time life is a sort of rhythmic progression of three characters. If one tells oneself that life is like that, one feels it less arbitrary.
