There was no signature, but instead a tag from the Iliad, in Greek. It was from the eleventh book, when Odysseus, cut off from his friends, finds himself alone and on enemy territory:

Be strong, saith my heart; I am a soldier;
I have seen worse sights than this.
Donna Tartt, The Secret History (via etida)

When I studied at Oxford, I had a bit of a breakdown, which, fortunately, turned into a breakthrough. A term is only eight weeks, and they’d do things like give you Ulysses, and give you a week to read it, digest it and write a paper on it. I remember a few weeks in I was frustrated and I hated it so much. I thought, ‘There’s no way I can do this, I cannot complete the task.’ I complained to a teacher and they told me that I had to accept failure as a starting point, and then I had to do my best from there. That was hard for me to get my head around. I like to start at the top, tick all the boxes, do extra work, do more than is asked from me. So, start at the bottom? Just to survive? That was tough.

Who read Romeo and Juliet and thought “this is a good play and all but you know what would make it better? Animated gnomes

“In Ireland, you go to someone’s house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you’re really just fine. She asks if you’re sure. You say of course you’re sure, really, you don’t need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don’t need a ting. Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn’t mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it’s no trouble and I can give you a hand in the kitchen. Then you go through the whole thing all over again until you both end up in the kitchen drinking tea and chatting.

In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don’t get any damned tea.

I liked the Irish way better.”

is there anything on earth more anxiety inducing than being given unclear instructions and then put under time pressure
