When one person disappears, the other is left alone, as if holding a string with no kite.

They become like a splinter beneath the skin-unseen, but painful nevertheless. Until they're exposed, coping with the loss is impossible."
Author: David Dosa

Author: Diane Loomans

"Poem to My Sex at Fifty-OneWhen I wash myself in the showerand afterward, as I am dryingwith the terrycloth towel,I love the feelof my vulva, the plump outer lipsand the neat inner onesthat fit together trimlyas hands in prayer. I liketo feel the slick crevice and the slightswelling that beginswith just this casual handling.So eager, willing as a puppy. When I was young I couldnot have imagined thisas I looked at women like me,my waist thickened like pudding,my rear end that once rode highas a kite, now hanging like asweater left out in the rain,skin drooping, not just the dewlapsor pennants that flutterunder the arms, but all over,loosening from the bone like boiledchicken. And it will onlyget worse. But that fleshyplum is always cheerful. And new.A taut globe shiningin an old fruit tree."
Author: Ellen Bass
65. "Különös, hogy minden felbukkanó emléknek két tulajdonsága van. A legerosebb, hogy mindig csöndesek, és úgy hatnak még akkor is, ha a valóságban nem voltak annyira csöndesek. Hangtalan jelenések, amelyek pillantásokkal, mozdulatokkal, szótlanul, hallgatva beszélnek hozzám, és hallgatásuk az a megrázó valami, ami arra kényszerít, hogy megragadjam a kabátom ujját, a puskámat, nehogy belévesszek ebbe a felolvadásba, ebbe a meglazulásba, amelyben testem szeretne kiterjedni és szelíden szétfolyni, hogy eljusson a dolgok mögött rejlo hatalmasságokhoz. Azért oly csöndesek ezek az emlékek, mert éppen ez az, ami oly megfoghatatlan nekünk. A fronton nincs csönd. S a front varázsa oly messzire terjed, hogy sohasem kerülhetünk ki belole. Még hátul a depókban és a pihenoszállásokon is mindig fülünkben marad a tuz zümmögése és tompa dörömbölése. Sohasem vagyunk olyan messze, hogy ezt ne hallanók."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque

"Szeretem magát, magára gondolok, lépten-nyomon elérzékenyülök s jobban, mintsem óhajtanám, a maga ügyeivel bajlódom, szorongva találgatom, vajon mit gondolhat most; átérzem minden gondját-baját, s át is vállalnám, csak lehetne; orizem a szívét, ahogy a szobáját oriztem valaha, kitessékelve az alkalmatlankodókat; egyszóval mind jobban tapasztalom, milyen az, mikor az ember valakit jobban szeret, mint önnönmagát: mert én így szeretem, drágám. Ezt gyakran mondják csak úgy a levegobe; dobálóznak a nagy szavakkal. Én, hogyha mondom is, sose szajkó módra, én mélységes mélyen átérzem, a nálam ez való igaz."
Author: Madame De Sévigné

92. "A kite can't really fly free,that's just an expression. In order to soar high in the sky the string of a kite needs to be anchored. If the string breaks the kite drops back to the ground. The kite's freedom depends on it not being as free as he thinks it is."
Author: Simon Napier Bell

It comes in a million shapes and sizes and it offers no guarantees, no sympathies for the man who told his kid he'd fly a kite today, no consideration for the girl who was sure she'd see the sun today, no promises for the weary world and the wants wants wants of which it has too many today. Life is like that."

My youth was suddenly gone up the water-sprout, and-I met you. You said you needed somebody. Well, I needed some-body, too. I thanked God for you, because you seemed to be gentle-a cleft in the rock of the world that I could hide in! But I guess I was asking, hoping-too much!

A message saying so merely confirms a piece of news some secret vein had already received, severing from me an irreplaceable part of myself, letting it loose like a kite on a broken string. That is why, walking across a school campus on this particular December morning, I keep searching the sky. As if I expected to see, rather like hearts, a lost pair of kites hurrying towards heaven."
Author: Truman Capote
98. "My, how foolish I am!" my friend cries, suddenly alert, like a woman remembering too late she has biscuits in the over. "You know what I've always thought?" She asks in a tone of discovery, and not smiling at me but at a point beyond. "I've always thought a body would have to be sick and dying before they saw the Lord. And I imagined that when He came it would be like looking at the Baptist window; pretty as colored glass with the sun pouring through, such a shrine you don't know it's getting dark. And it's been a comfort: to think of that shine taking away all the spooky feeling. But I'll wager it never happens. I'll wager at the very end a body realizes that the Lord has already shown Himself. That things as they are" – her hand circles in a gesture that gathers clouds and kites and grass and Queenie pawing earth over bone – "just what they've always seen, was seeing Him. As for me, I could leave the world with today in my eyes."
Author: Truman Capote

100. "Itt ült o a világ tetején, gondolta, mert nem szabadulhatott attol az érzéstol, hogy ma délelott vele minden az ég világon elso ízben történik, netán utoljára, s olyan volt, mint az utazó, aki még félálomban is tudja, kitekintve a vonat ablakán, hogy most kell szemügyre vennie valamit, ezt a várost, azt az öszvérfogatot, a mezon dolgozó asszonyt, mert egyiket se látja soha többé."
Author: Virginia Woolf
