The morgue attendant pretended not to see him as he passed, figuring that a spontaneous reanimation would require paperwork that he did not wish to fill out."

Feeble as dying embers, they were the palsied mourners at time's wake.McMasters could hear the ultimate silence and feel the biting cold of the one true void.

"Van Gogh: "It is precisely in learning to suffer without complaining,29 learning to consider pain without repugnance, that one risks vertigo a little; and yet it might be possible, yet one glimpses even a vague probability that on the other side of life we'll glimpse justifications for pain, which seen from here sometimes takes up the whole horizon so much that it takes on the despairing proportions of a deluge."
Author: Liesbeth Heenk

Author: Megan Lindholm
31. "Take your clothes off." "What?" "You heard me." Evelyn forced her mouth shut. She looked around the room, buying time. The faded brown curtains hung limply over the windows, not quite touching, and the afternoon light filtered through the gaps, its beams turning the dust in the air into diamonds. She could hear the rattle of a wagon on the street below and the regular rhythm of squeaking bedsprings in the adjacent room. "So? What are you waiting for?" She stared at the man on the moth eaten chaise longue in front of her. He was serious."
Author: Molly Ann Wishlade
32. "Miriam will never know what kind of dog attacked her, will imagine a Doberman or a German shepherd with snarling, angry teeth despite the fact she bears neither bite marks nor broken skin. It will never cross her mind that the dog was a beagle and that she was knocked over from a surprise more than force. The children of the house she fled will use the incident to convince their parents to keep the dog, which had been on the verge of being given away for its propensity to shit at the slightest hint of thunder it having been sequestered in the garage that night because of a stormy forecast. The family will never know what manner of burglar their fog deflected, will imagine a scruffy, heavy-set man with scars and a limp groping the family jewelery. It will never cross their minds that their intruder was am upper middle-class wife and mother of two who would have had eyes only for their Chinese teakettle."
Author: Myla Goldberg
33. "I can never forget the indescribably crafty shadow that passed over Flatfish's face as he laughed at me, his neck drawn in. It resembled contempt, yet it was different: if the world, like the sea, had depths of a thousand fathoms, this was the kind of weird shadows which might be found hovering here and there at the bottom. It was a laugh that enabled me to catch a glimpse of the very nadir of adult life."
Author: Osamu Dazai

She chuckled and shook her head. "Fire ant. They have a nasty bite that burns."Nathan smiled. "Well, why didn't he just say fire?""He thinks he did."
Author: Rachel Gibson
36. "That girl in the backseat of the beater, I wonder if she's bored d restless, stuck in this small town, hating the slow, stoned laughter and the same rock song on the radio. I hope she caught a glimpse of me through the steam. Even if she only saw my tear widen and my legs kick off the ground, she might think I know where I'm going. She might think I've found a way."
Author: Rebecca Godfrey

Author: Sebastian Junger

I failed myself.""Most of all, I failed Nick."

46. "Okay." I bounced down the stairs. "I'm decent."He was waiting at the foot of the stairs, closer than I'd thought, and I bounded right into him.

"You are utterly indecent - no one should look so tempting, it's not fair.""Tempting how?" I asked. "I can change . . ."He sighed, shaking his head. "You are so absurd." He pressed his cool lips delicately to my forehead, and the room spun. The smell of his breath made it impossible to think."Shall I explain how you are tempting me?" he said. It was clearly a rhetorical question. His fingers traced slowly down my spine, his breath coming more quickly against my skin. My hands were limp on his chest, and I felt ligtheaded again. He tilted his head slowly and touched his cool lips to mine for the second time, very carefully, parting them slightly.And then I collapsed."
Author: Stephenie Meyer

Heavy sunflowers weeping over fences; iris curling and browning at the edges far away from their purple hearts; ears of corn letting their auburn hair wind down to their stalks. AND THE BOYS.

EVEN THEIR FOOTSTEPS LEFT A SMELL OF SMOKE BEHIND!"

Today's Quote

Wo wären wir ohne das Morgen? Wir hätten stattdessen das Heute. Und wenn es so wäre, wenn ich mit dir das Heute hätte, dann würde ich hoffen, dass heute der längste Tag wäre. Ich würde ihn mit dir füllen und alles tun, was ich jemals geliebt habe. Ich würde lachen, ich würde reden, ich würde zuhören und lernen, und ich würde lieben, lieben, lieben. Ich würde aus jedem Tag ein Heute machen und jedes Heute mit dir verbringen, und niemals würde ich mir Sorgen um morgen machen, um den Tag, an dem ich nicht bei dir wäre. Und wenn dieses gefürchtete Morgen für uns kommt, dann sollst du wissen, dass ich dich nicht verlassen und auch nicht zurückgelassen werden wollte - und dass die Augenblicke mit dir die schönsten Augenblicke meines Lebens waren."
