Quotes About Omicidio

"Il suicidio è una forma di omicidio. Omicidio premeditato. Non lo fai la prima volta che ti passa per la testa. Ti ci devi abituare. E ti servono mezzo, occasione e movente. Un suicidio riuscito esige buona organizzazione e sangue freddo, cose solitamente incompatibili con lo stato danimo suicida. Limportante è coltivare il distacco. Un modo per farlo è esercitarsi a immaginarsi morta, o in punto di morte. Quando vedi una finestra, devi immaginarti il tuo corpo che cade dalla finestra. Quando vedi un coltello, devi immaginarti il coltello che ti lacera la pelle. Quando arriva un treno, devi immaginarti col torace schiacciato dalle ruote. Esercizi come questi servono a ottenere la giusta distanza." - Author: Susanna Kaysen

Quotes About Self Absorbed Man

"Being a reader has brought me much joy, laughter, and rich experience. But reading has also wounded me. The sacrament of reading has plowed me open and sown seeds of empathy that have taken root in deep soil. Over the years, reading has caused me to grow from a shallow, self-absorbed youth to one who seeks out the pain of the world. Reading has burdened me with the welfare of my fellow human, but sometimes the burden proves too heavy for my narrow shoulders." - Author: Steve Kendall
