Subtle Impressions

Photographer Unknown, (Subtle Impressions on the Mind)

“And then the sly arch-lover that he was, he said the subtlest thing of all: that the lover was nearer the divine than the beloved; for the god was in the one but not in the other – perhaps the tenderest, most mocking thought that ever was thought, and source of all the guile and secret bliss the lover knows.”
Thomas Mann, Death in Venice and Other Tales
