Maybe there are just two broad modes, and out of this fact comes our current division."
Author: George Saunders

To worry about any of them is, in effect, to miniaturize the big picture to portraits of battered puppy dogs."

Like if they don't get written down somewhere and they shut their eyes for a minute, they might disappear."

Her gaze is drifting across the sky where the moon sits in a great cold ring as she recalls more and more words. Only one thing matters, only one word. If we speak, it is because we have not found that thing, nor shall find it."
Author: Nadeem Aslam
