"The memory that you once sat at my feet will begin to haunt you, and in bitterness and shame you will want to degrade me. I do not want your admiration now, because I do not want your insults in the future. I bear with my loneliness now in order to avoid greater loneliness in the years ahead. You see, loneliness is the price we have to pay for being born in this modern age, so full of freedom, independence, and our own egotistical selves."
「かつてはその人の膝の前に跪いたという記憶が、今度はその人の頭の上に足を載せさせようとするのです。私は未来の侮辱を受けないために、今の尊敬を斥けたいと思うのです。私は今より一層淋しい未来の私を我慢する代りに、淋しい今の私を我慢したいのです。自由と独立と己れとに充ちた現代に生れた我々は、その犠牲としてみんなこの淋しみを味わわなくてはならないでしょう」

Natsume Soseki, Kokoro

“What do I want from you? — … Sometimes I feel I’m going stark mad — That I ought to say — Dearest — You are so much to me that you must not come near me — Coming may bring you darkness instead of light — And it’s in Everlasting light that you should live.”
"All I want is to preserve that wonderful something which so purely exists between us."

- Excerpt of a letter from Alfred Stieglitz to Georgia O’Keeffe on May 26, 1918.

museumnerd:

Wouldn’t it be amazing if the paintings (Rembrandt’s “Storm on the Sea of Galilee,” and Vermeer’s “The Concert,”) reappeared in their frames which have remained empty in the Gardner Museum for the past 23 years?

FBI says it has identified the thieves in Gardner Museum heist; paintings’ location still unknown - Boston.com

In a stunning twist in a case that had frustrated investigators for decades, federal law enforcement officials said today that they had identified the people who stole $500 million worth of masterworks in a daring heist from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990.

The officials also said they had determined where the artworks had traveled in the years after the robbery, which is considered the greatest art theft in history. But the officials said they did not know where they were now and were appealing to the public for their help in finding them….
…
Law enforcement officials have been puzzled for years by the heist. The robbers entered the museum and tied up two night watchmen in the early morning hours of March 18, 1990. After years of investigative dead ends, DesLauriers said, the probe “accelerated” in 2010 and “crucial pieces of evidence” were developed identifying the robbers and their associates.


I would love to see Vermeer’s The Concert in person.
