↳ Memoirs of a Geisha (2005)
She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.

I open his throat from the outside to access the trachea and expose the vocal cords. I open his throat from the inside, using the neck of a cello. Powder on the wound. I wanted to play him. I wanted to create a sound. My sound. This… is my design.

↳ The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-2003)
The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of men, who, above all else, desire power. But they were, all of them, deceived, for another Ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret a master Ring, to control all others. And into this Ring he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One Ring to rule them all.

Van Gogh + flowers [3/?]
Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death: Sleep because of the opium extracted from them, and death because of the common blood-red color of the red poppy in particular. In Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead. Poppies used as emblems on tombstones symbolize eternal sleep.
A second interpretation of poppies in Classical mythology is that the bright scarlet colour signifies a promise of resurrection after death. (x)

↳ ring composition
The concept of a ring composition, as used in a narrative, revolves around specific rhetorical techniques related to ancient oral traditions, where a speaker will present various ideas or topics in a sequence, before reaching a kind of crescendo composed of the most important topic or idea; afterward, the speaker will retrace the pattern back to the original starting point. This kind of communication has been used for many centuries to tell stories and relay information. Experts believe it has served various purposes, including a mnemonic element that helps the speaker remember how to proceed with a narrative. (x)
