Possession

From the movie Possession, based on the letters exchanged between Randolph Henry Ash and Christabel LaMotte during their intense secret relationship:

I shan’t forget the first glimpse  of your form.

I have dreamt nightly of your face……

and walked the landscape of my life 

with the rhythms of your writing

……ringing in my ears.

I shall never forget

our shining  progress towards one another.

Never have I felt

such a concentration of my entire being.

I cannot let you burn me up. 

Nor can I resist you.

No mere human can stand in a fire

and not be consumed.

 

 

Jokes

Jokes employ the methods of condensation, displacement, allusion, substitution of a trivial idea for an important one; but, unlike dreams, jokes perform a social function, they require an audience.

The source of all jokes, humor, wit and comedy is man’s repressed instinctual nature, especially the instincts of sex and aggression.”

Freud

I want him to be so damn right 🙂 .
