Stephane Mallarme

A Lonely Quiet Concert

“In reading, a lonely quiet concert is given to our minds; all our mental faculties will be present in this symphonic exaltation.”

Stephane Mallarme was a French poet (1842 – 1898). Mallarme was famous for holding literary salons in his Paris home. His poetry inspired musical interpretations from Debussy and Ravel.

At first, this quote sounds melancholy. But it really is a glorious thing to lose yourself in a book. It’s the rare book which suspends time. Read any lately?
