In the ordinary jumble of my literary drawer, I sometimes find texts I wrote ten, fifteen, or even more years ago. And many of them seem to me written by a stranger: I simply do not recognize myself in them. There was a person who wrote them, and it was I. I experienced them, but it was in another life, from which I just woke up, as if from someone else’s dream.
— Fernando Pessoa (via writingquotes)

— Terri Conley, professor of psychology and women’s studies at the University of Michigan ( link )

Dear Pop …

I’m fed up, disgusted, and totally out of sorts with Duke University and formal education in general, for that matter… For a person whose sole burning ambition is to write — like myself — college is useless beyond the Sophomore year.
