The last days of Pompeii by Lord Lytton

early 20th century paper back edition 

We would rather be ruined than changed
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the moment
And let our illusions die.

—W.H. Auden (via observando)

I wonder how many people in this city
live in furnished rooms.
Late at night when I look out at the buildings
I swear I see a face in every window
looking back at me,
and when I turn away
I wonder how many go back to their desks
and write this down.

—"I Wonder How Many People in this City," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book The Spice-Box of Earth. (via leonardcohenminute)
