Beautiful Anomalies

“Any event in this world – any human being for that matter – that seems to wear even the faintest cast or warp of strangeness, is apt to leave a disproportionately sharp impression on one’s senses.”

“In contrast, Life’s mere ordinary day-to-day – its thoughts, talk, doings – wither and die out of the mind like leaves from a tree. Year after year a similar crop recurs, and that goes too. It is mere debris, it perishes. But these other anomalies survive, even through the cold of age.”

– Walter de la Mare
