Entry: Doa Thursday, April 27, 2006

"....I mention this because I was talking to a rather pompous Orientalist over the weekend, and at one point, during a very deep, metaphysical lull in the conversation, I told him I had a little brother who once got over an unhappy love affair by trying to translate the Mundaka Upanishad into classical Greek. (He laughed uproariously--you know the way Orientalists laugh.)"

('Franny and Zooey' - JD Salinger)

Dan ini yang aku minta dalam doaku akhir-akhir ini; semoga, suatu saat, aku kembali merasakan patah hati, sehingga punya cukup energi untuk memulai 'Ulysses'.
