A poet of my city... forever in our hearts.

I got to know C. P. Cavafy because of a series of pictures called in the dull village by David Hockney, which was inspired by Cavafy's poems. I read his As Much As You Can, and felt quite encouraged by its persuasive and warm lines. Maybe we don't have the intelligence or capacity to accomplish significant feat, we still have the reason to strive for our lives. The key point is what is the reason if life doesn't pay us. For me, it lies in itself with such belief that one's attitude to the misery and desolation of life indicates what we are as a human being.
