“Photographs don’t discriminate between the living and the dead. In the fragments of time and shards of light that compose them, everyone is equal. Now you see us; now you don’t. It doesn’t matter whether you look through a camera lens and press the shutter. It doesn’t even matter whether you open your eyes or close them. The pictures are always there. And so are the people in them.”
Robert Goddard

“But perhaps revelation often comes when you’re not looking for it, resolution when you don’t realize you need it.”
Robert Goddard, Past Caring

“What are you - Secret Service?'
'If I were, I wouldn't admit it.'
'And you're not admitting it, I notice.”
Robert Goddard, The Ways of the World
