busy to forget the time forget the date, wake up work,
work at the end and continue to sleep ...
where i am today, what day of the week ...
忙碌到忘記時間忘記日期, 醒來工作, 工作結束又繼續睡....

"literature isn't a moral beauty contest. its power arises from the authority and audacity with which the impersonation is pulled off; the belief it inspires is what counts.”
—-philip roth “writing, for me, was a feat of self-preservation. if i did not do it, i would die. so i did it. obstinacy, not talent, saved my life.”
—philip roth “all that we don't know is astonishing. even more astonishing is what passes for knowing.”
a special tribute to one my favorite, admirable and one of the greatest postmodern writers, philip roth, whose writing prose and contributions to the literary canon influenced the world of literature and the lives of many. (march 19, 1933—may 22, 2018)
a very dear friend and mentor of mine once told me that time is the one thing we cannot beat. time is constantly shifting, changing and moving along, and there is nothing that we can do to stop it. time will ultimately continue to pass until the day we pass on. however, there is actually one thing that can beat time even after we pass away, and that is our writing, our stories, our art and our life’s work. when we leave earth, these things stay behind, which is the one thing that immortalizes us. my friend and mentor was right, once we are gone, our work of art does stay behind, which means our stories stay behind, which means a part of our spirit, essence and life stays behind forever for others to continue knowing us. my friend’s lesson certainly applies to philip roth and his master craftsmanship of literature. his work will remain forever, which means he is still very much alive in spirit here on earth. and the greatest thing is that roth’s life lessons that his novels offer stay behind for others to continue learning. thank for everything that you have done for this world and the world of literature mr. roth. your work will always be cherished, and the life lessons in each of your books will never be forgotten and always continue to teach many, including me. #booknerd#bookworm#bookblogger#bookaddict#bookaholic#bookstagram#bookish#bookshelf#booklove#booklover#ilovebooks#reading#readinglist#currentlyreading#fiction#literature#novel
