“I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. I’m not afraid of other colors, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness. How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me.” from Orhan Pamuk’s My Name is Red
