“He experienced a familiar comfort being in the presence of another person's unknowable pain. More than any landscape, this place felt like home.”
Adam Haslett, You Are Not a Stranger Here

“I had never understood before the invisibility of a human. How what we take to be a person is in fact a spirit we can never see.”
Adam Haslett, Imagine Me Gone

“Against the monster, I’ve always wanted meaning. Not for its own sake, because in the usual course of things, who needs the self-consciousness of it? Let meaning be immanent, noted in passing, if at all. But that won’t do when the monster has its funnel driven into the back of your head and is sucking the light coming through your eyes straight out of you into the mouth of oblivion. So like a cripple I long for what others don’t notice they have: ordinary meaning.    Instead, I have words. The monster doesn’t take words. It may take speech, but not words in the head, which are its minions. The army of the tiny, invisible dead wielding their tiny, spinning scythes, cutting at the flesh of the mind. Unlike ordinary blades, they sharpen with use. They’re keenest in repetition. Self-accusation being nothing if not repetitive. There is nothing deep about this. It is merely endless.    I”
Adam Haslett, Imagine Me Gone
