“Once the phial was full…”

leave a comment »

I have asked a lot of my emotions—one hundred and twenty stories. The price was high, right up with Kipling, because there was one little drop of something—not blood, not a tear, not my seed, but me more intimate than these, in every story. It was the extra I had. Now it has gone and I am just like you now.

Once the phial was full—here is the bottle it came in.

Hold on, there’s a drop left there…No, it was just the way the light fell…

F. Scott Fitzgerald
