Alphabetarion # Reflection | Alfred De Musset, 1834

Ida O'Keeffe, Variations on a Lighthouse Theme IV, 1931-32 

 “You’re like a lighthouse shining beside the sea of humanity, motionless: all you
 can see is your own reflection in the water. You’re alone, so you think it’s a vast, 
magnificent panorama. You haven’t sounded the depths. You simply believe in the 
beauty of God’s creation. But I have spent all this time in the water, diving deep into 
the howling ocean of life, deeper than anyone. While you were admiring the surface, 
I saw the shipwrecks, the drowned bodies, the monsters of the deep”

Alfred De Musset, Lorenzaccio, 1834
