Alphabetarion # Desire | F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1922

Adam Diston, Child trying to cut a sunbeam, 1886  

 "You can't have anything, you can't have anything at all. Because desire 
just cheats you. It's like a sunbeam skipping here and there about a room. 
It stops and gilds some inconsequential object, and we poor fools try
 to grasp it - but when we do the sunbeam moves on to something else,
 and you've got the inconsequential part, but the glitter that made
 you want it is gone."

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned, 1922
