C.P. Cavafy Notebook

AS FAR AS YOU CAN

And if you can’t make your life as you want,
strive for this at least
as far as you can: don’t degrade it        
through too much association with people,   
through too many pursuits and conversations.

Don’t degrade it by taking it,
circulating often and exposing it                   
to the daily foolishness                                
of social relations and gatherings,                 
till it becomes like a bothersome stranger.

Constantine P. Cavafy, 1913
