“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life” 

Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Living things don’t last—it’s all temporary. Death in life. That’s why they’re called natures mortes. Maybe you don’t see it at first with all the beauty and bloom, the little speck of rot. But if you look closer—there it is.”

Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch
