I love the night passionately. I love it as I love my country, or my mistress, with an instinctive, deep, and unshakeable love. I love it with all my senses: I love to see it, I love to breathe it in, I love to open my ears to its silence, I love my whole body to be caressed by its blackness. — Guy de Maupassant
There really is something very attractive by a cool, dark, night. It’s one of the reasons I used to love going camping. Now, I’m too old for sleeping on the ground. 🙂

An interesting quote. What would happen if humans could be arrested for “puffery?”
I love playing bitches. There’s a lot of bitch in every woman — a lot in every man. — Joan Crawford
I think this is ultimately true. Sometimes you have to be the bitch.
Envy, jealousy, ambition, any kind of greed are passions; love is an action, the practice of human power, which can be practiced only in freedom and never as a result of compulsion. – Erich Fromm
