“People weren't made for this kind of thing, he said, the way I feel about you, how much I feel, no one ever has or ever will even come close to it.”
Laekan Zea Kemp, The Things They Didn't Bury
tags: love

“You’re not going to disappear,” I said. “I won’t let you”.
“Even if this is all there is? Going to school and working at my uncle’s restaurant and fighting with Mari? Why would anyone want to remember this?”
“I want to remember you. Just like this.”
She rolled onto her back, hands covering her face, and I pulled them away.
“People like you don’t disappear,” I said.
“Then where do they go?”
“Everywhere.”
Laekan Zea Kemp, Breathing Ghosts

“Fear, they had come to realize, not machines, is the most powerful weapon there is.”

Making Connections: 787. THE THINGS THEY DIDN'T BURY by Laekan Zea Kemp 1 24 Dec 25, 2012 09:34PM  
“I am not a smart man, particularly, but one day, at long last, I stumbled from the dark woods of my own, and my family's, and my country's past, holding in my hands these truths: that love grows from the rich loam of forgiveness; that mongrels make good dogs; that the evidence of God exists in the roundness of things. This much, at least, I've figured out. I know this much is true.”
Wally Lamb, I Know This Much Is True

“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

“I tried to contain myself... but I escaped!”
Gary Paulsen

“Knowing where you come from is one thing, but it's suicide to stay there.”
Dennis Covington, Salvation on Sand Mountain: Snake-Handling and Redemption in Southern Appalachia

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
Albert Einstein
