It is better to make an irrational noise in a bush than in a desert.
…nobody ever takes from the desert anything but aridity and monsters…
Madness plants mirrors in the desert. I find the means frightening.
Pale sky, white land; like somewhere past the end of the world
Ô, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen and waste its sweetness on the desert air.
