Breyten Breytenbach Quotes

"Leaving traces of ourselves, as in creative productivity, could then be seen as part of the definition of consciousness for us as well.

And so we dream."

Quotes About Being Tattered

"It is a well-worn truth that cops grow callous, a cliché so tattered that it is even common on television. All cops face things every day that are so gruesome, brutal, and bizarre that no normal human being could deal with them on a daily basis and stay sane. And so they learn not to feel, to grow and maintain a poker-faced whimsy toward all the surprising things their fellow humans find to do to each other. All cops practice not-feeling, and it may be that Miami cops are better at it than others, since they have so many opportunities to learn." - Author: Jeff Lindsay

She waited for him to look around, to factor in the people swarming the grounds and how best to respond, but he just kept looking at her. As if the world had paused for him, too.And then he chuckled under his breath, more to himself than to her, and said, "It was boring as hell without you."She laughed, and ascended the steps into the castle. And though she didnt reach for him, and though he didnt offer his arm, they walked a bit closer as they made their way to the king." - Author: Sarah J. Maas
