"Human Racing"
Marry Me (2007)
Kontext: Romeo, where'd you go?
It's been years and still no sign,
But I'm keeping hope alive. Juliet, how you been?
You look like death like you sure could use some rest
from this place human racing and the faces of people who pound at your door
They always want more — they want more.

„There you could always go into the Luxembourg museum and all the paintings were heightened and clearer and more beautiful if you were belly-empty, hollow-hungry.“

—  Ernest Hemingway, kniha A Moveable Feast

Zdroj: A Moveable Feast (1964), Ch. 8: 'Hunger Was Good Discipline'
Kontext: You got very hungry when you did not eat enough in Paris because all the bakery shops had such good things in windows and people ate outside at tables on the sidewalk so that you saw and smelled the food. When you were skipping meals at a time when you had given up journalism and were writing nothing that anyone in America would buy, explaining at home that you were lunching out with someone, the best place to do it was the Luxembourg gardens... There you could always go into the Luxembourg museum and all the paintings were heightened and clearer and more beautiful if you were belly-empty, hollow-hungry. I learned to understand Cézanne much better and to see truly how he made landscapes when I was hungry.
