Take pleasure in your dreams; relish your principles and drape your purest feelings on the heart of a precious lover.
Giotto di Bondone
Idealism is the noble toga that political gentlemen drape over their will to power.

When I was a child, I was always nicking my mum's jewellery to wear, and I loved to drape a massive Chinese shawl around me from our fancy-dress box. I was obsessed with a feather and rabbit-fur collar from the age of three and attempted to make one with my friend, whose father was a gamekeeper.

When I get into trouble at school I'd like to take an invisibility cloak, drape it over me and sneak out the door. Or I'd like to have a 3 headed-dog because then no one would argue with me.
I drape a lot. I cut. I have to touch. For me, it's almost impossible to start without that.
