Hidden Things


I first came across this quote many years ago while reading Carolyn Forche's The Country Between Us. A few years ago some friends gave me Cavafy's collected works, and I came across the quote again. I'm surprised I haven't posted it here before as it is one of my favorites.

Of all the things I did and all the things I said
Let no one try to find out who I was
An obstacle was there transforming
The actions and the manner of my life
An obstacle was often there
To silence me when I began to speak

-from “Hidden Things” by Constantine Cavafy
