The Highest Enjoyment of Timelessness ...
Vladimir Nabokov: 鈥淚 confess I do not believe in time. I like to fold my magic carpet, after use, in such a way as to superimpose one part of the pattern upon another. Let visitors trip. And the highest enjoyment of timelessness 鈥 in a landscape selected at random 鈥 is when I stand among rare butterflies and their food plants. This is ecstasy, and behind the ecstasy is something else, which is hard to explain. It is like a momentary vacuum into which rushes all that I love. A sense of oneness with sun and stone. A thrill of gratitude to whom it may concern 鈥 to the contrapuntal genius of human fate or to tender ghosts humoring a lucky mortal.鈥

When the treasured Enrique Vila-Matas says that 鈥淥ccasionally my sense of irony reaches Paris itself鈥 (within the delightful Never Any End to Paris), we might add that it鈥檚 a longer journey than one might think, when one factors in the meanderings of the Seine.
Speaking of irony, we love this Vila-Matas original: 鈥淚rony is the highest form of sincerity.鈥
