We hear someone say "a long time ago it was noon," the light bounces off the center of immediate past, something thats neither a screen nor attempts to offer images.

Fleeing together long ago became living together and thus the integrity of the gesture was lost; the shine of immediate past." - Author: Roberto Bolaño

Hold fast to your beliefs and others will listen." He continued at a slower pace, "Of the affairs of love... my only advice is to be honest. Thats your most powerful took to unlock a heart or gain forgiveness. Thats all I have to say." He seemed slightly self-conscious of his speech." - Author: Christopher Paolini
