No rot, she was saying, no fruit. You couldn't lose a ghost to death."

They'd murdered her. These monsters had murdered her.Scarlet pressed her palms into the crate, trying to push through the plastic.

The moon is on him like skin, a sheaf of water."

Leguin"
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin

Today's Quote

Oliver, success is usually a feeling of mere relief, where failure is pain. Happiness, you see, lies in neither, but in sticking to a daily ritual and becoming absorbed in something useful. When the war is over, even the greatest warriors do not exult. They go back to their garden or kitchen or library -- or school -- and resume life.(as said by Mrs. Pearson)"
