Original Unknown Girl Biography

Desire is the emotion that sets us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. We are ruled by it, yet, ironically, it's that irrational appetite for anything from an ice cream to an empire to a fellow human being, that has led us to becoming the masters of our small part of the universe. We humans are driven mad by desire, made sick with it, commit our worst crimes in its name and yet, when our desire is sated, we experience happiness like no other creature. Consumed with desire we are at our most human and least predictable. It's a constant battle between the darkness and the light, which only ends in some form of consummation. Mariella Frostrup

There is some pleasure even in words, when they bring forgetfulness of present miseries. Sophocles
