Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2

"[…] it is hard for me to be alone with my thoughts. They are not properly thoughts; they are memories which in my weakness haunt me and strangely move me."

— Erich Maria Remarque, from All Quiet on the Western Front (via fleurstains)

Chorus: Ruht wohl, ihr heiligen Gebeine, from St John Passion, BWV 245

Rest well, you blessed limbs,
now I will no longer mourn you,
rest well and bring me also to peace!
  The grave that is allotted to you
  and encloses no further suffering,
  opens heaven for me and closes off Hell.

Cantata BWV 93 - “Wer nur den lieben Gott läßt walten” - opening Chorale

Who only lets dear God rule
and hopes in Him at all times,
God will wondrously support
in every torment and sorrow.
Whoever trusts in God, the Almighty,
has not built upon sand.

"I wish I could do whatever I liked behind the curtain of “madness”. Then: I’d arrange flowers, all day long, I’d paint; pain, love and tenderness, I would laugh as much as I feel like at the stupidity of others, and they would all say: “Poor thing, she’s crazy!” (Above all, I would laugh at my own stupidity.) I would build my world which while I lived, would be in agreement with all the worlds. The day, or the hour, or the minute that I lived would be mine and everyone else’s — my madness would not be an escape from “reality”."

— Frida Kahlo, from The Diary Of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait  (via chandr-a)
