Tender Is The Night

“One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or of the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald


  1. The main thing that attracted me to your blog was the poetic title "Something Akin to Drowning". After perusing your blog I must say that you are incredibly talented! I look forward to reading more of your work. May I become a follower? Feel free to follow me as well! Keep up the amazing work!

  2. The prof was right: Fitzgerald's entire tone in this work is remarkably different.
