[Later That Evening I Lay Down In Min's Empty Bed Upstairs And Pulled Her White Sheet Up Over My Head. I Felt For My Kneecaps And Hip Bones. I Lay Perfectly Still, Arms Down, Palms Up. I Closed My Eyes And Pretended I Was Floating In Space, Then At Sea, Then Not Floating At All.I Hummed An Old Beach Boys Tune. In My Room... Min Had Taught Me How To Play It On Her Guitar When We Were Kids.]

Quotes About Lit

"And thus they form a perfect group; he walks back two or three paces, selects his point of sight, and begins to sketch a hurried outline. He has finished it before they move; he hears their voices, though he cannot hear their words, and wonders what they can be talking of. Presently he walks on, and joins them.You have a corpse there, my friends? he says. Yes; a corpse washed ashore an hour ago.Drowned? Yes, drowned; - a young girl, very handsome. Suicides are always handsome, he says; and then he stands for a little while idly smoking and meditating, looking at the sharp outline of the corpse and the stiff folds of the rough canvas covering.Life is such a golden holiday to him young, ambitious, clever - that it seems as though sorrow and death could have no part in his destiny.

Quotes About Satisfying Yourself

"In a way, literature is true than life, he said to himself. On paper, you say exactly and completely what you feel. How easy it is to break things off on paper! You hate, you shout, you kill, you commit suicide; you carry things to the very end. And thats why its false. But its damned satisfying. In life, youre constantly denying yourself, and others are always contradicting you. On paper, I make time stand still and I impose my convictions on the whole world; they become the only reality." - Author: Simone de Beauvoir
