He nodded. "Maybe you shouldn't have been trying to make out with him," he suggested.

How did he know that? "I was kissing him good-bye."

He snorted and exchanged glances with the nurse. "That's not what it looked like to me."

Roman Payne
“When I was younger, I would cling to life because life was at the top of the turning wheel. But like the song of my gypsy girl, the great wheel turns over and lands on a minor key. It is then that you come of age and life means nothing to you. To live, to die, to overdose, to fall in a coma in the street... it is all the same. It is only in the peach innocence of youth that life is at its crest on top of the wheel. And there being only life, the young cling to it, they fear death… And they should! ...For they are 'in' life.”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Kaui Hart Hemmings
“The sun is shining, mynah birds are chattering, palm trees are swaying, so what. I'm in the hospital and I'm healthy. My heart is beating as it should. My brain is firing off messages that are loud and clear. My wife is on the upright hospital bed, positioned the way people sleep on airplanes, her body stiff, head cocked to the side. Her hands on her lap.”
Kaui Hart Hemmings, The Descendants

“Sure, scars can be painfull to look at, reminding you where you've been, but they also remind you of how far you've come.”

“A deep kiss can put you in an emotional state of coma, sometimes in a reckless vulnerability, we lose virginity and sanity, and maybe our bond of love becomes strong or weak.”

“To tell your soul that you love it, is like remembering who you are after being in a coma for a hundred years. Your face will beam the light of a hundred galaxies.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Hal Zina Bennett
“The coma carried me into a world where time and space seemed to vanish; it was a dreamlike existence in which people, places, and situations shifted as quickly as thoughts. I had a profound sense of being at a crossroads, a turning point, somewhere between death and life...”
Hal Zina Bennett, Zuni Fetishes: Using Native American Sacred Objects for Meditation, Reflection, and Insight

Ted Chiang
“My message to you is this: pretend that you have free will. It's essential that you behave as if your decisions matter, even though you know they don't. The reality isn't important: what's important is your belief, and believing the lie is the only way to avoid a waking coma. Civilization now depends on self-deception. Perhaps it always has.”
Ted Chiang, Stories of Your Life and Others

Filipe Russo
“Prospero próspero: a cada dia eu acordo de um coma diferente.”
Filipe Russo, Caro Jovem Adulto

“Have fun, party hard, and tell her I love her.”

“We do not know what it's like to be a bat, we do not know what it's like to be in coma. we can't even say that we know what it's like to be sleeping. We can say what it's like to be restored to consciousness after sleeping. If there are no dreams during our sleep then the sleeping life is an empty life. We might say of such a life that it's not like being anything. We protect that life on the assumption that come the morning its normal functions will be restored. Suppose it was the case however that such functions were only restored every two days... every eight days... twice a year but only briefly. I assume the point is clear. Actions that end life are irretrievable. If we are mistaken at that point there is no going back.”
Daniel N. Robinson, Consciousness and Its Implications

“≫Koma. I resten af…≪ Mortimer kastede et hurtigt blik på timeglasset, ≫hans liv. Hvilket vil være evigt, nu da terningen er væk. Død, men ikke død. Levende, men ikke levende. Kan du se, hvor skræmmende det er?≪”
Kenneth Bøgh Andersen, Dødens Terning

Richard Yates
“With their mother lying in a coma twenty miles away, they clung together drunkenly and wept for the loss of their father.”
Richard Yates, The Easter Parade
