the air is sickening, you will realize, too late,
that wealth is not in bank accounts and that
you can’t eat money.”

ONE LONG LAST LOOK

 

“I had said goodbye to her once before, but it took everything
I had to say goodbye to her then, again, for the last time,
like poor Orpheus turning for a last backward glance at the ghost
of his only love and in the same heartbeat losing her forever:
hinc illae lacrimae, hence those tears.”

 

~ Donna Tartt ~
