And Therefore Limitless

IsadoraDuncan1904

Hers was the unobjective and therefore limitless and insane desire of the moth for the star, of the schoolgirl for the crooner, of the bored and frustrated housewife for Rudolph Valentino.

~ Aldous Huxley, The Devils of Loudun

It’s not the woman Huxley had in mind, but the photograph is of American dancer Isadora Duncan, 1904.
