“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
—   Frida Kahlo

I recognized that person more than the skin-deep girl posing in the other frames of film. That girl in her underpants was vulnerable, open, awkward — she was me. (x)

Sir John Everett Millais, Ophelia, 1851 - 2, oil paint on canvas, Tate 

There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke; When down her weedy trophies and herself Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide, And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up; Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes, As one incapable of her own distress, Or like a creature native and indued Unto that element; but long it could not be Till that her garments, heavy with their drink, Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay To muddy death.
Hamlet, Act IV, Scene vii

Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide, 
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up; 
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes, 
As one incapable of her own distress, 
Or like a creature native and indued 
Unto that element; but long it could not be 
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink, 
Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay 
To muddy death.

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant. (Salvador Dalí)
