Chattering classes

‘speak clearly; speak easily but not too much, especially when others want their turn; do not interrupt; be courteous; deal seriously with serious matters and gracefully with lighter ones; never criticise people behind their backs; stick to subjects of general interest; do not talk about yourself; and, above all, never lose your temper’

‘remember people’s names, and be a good listener’

– 岑寧兒。〈浪漫〉。《Refine Vol. 5》。


‘But you give me this feeling, it’s everglow…’

Paper Towns (2015)

‘People have always looked at me and seen what they wanted to see.
Looking down on the city and all I could think about was how I felt just as paper as everything else.
A paper town for a paper girl.’

– Schreier, J. (Director). (2015). Paper towns [Motion picture]

The Lantern Out of Doors

‘Men go by me whom either beauty bright
In mould or mind or what not else makes rare:
They rain against our much-thick and marsh air
Rich beams, till death or distance buys them quite.’

– Gerard Manley Hopkins. The Lantern Out of Doors. In As kingfishers catch fire.
