The night was bigger than the day, and in its realm, life seemed to have more possibilities.”
Dean Koontz, Midnight

It was remarked that the clock began to strike, and I began to cry, simultaneously.”

“As the bus took us north on a connection of dark farm roads and smaller highways, I started to wonder where all the cars were. How could the streets be so empty? How could people sleep when there was so much at stake, so much happening, when there were so many reasons to be awake and alive?
And I wondered how it was that I could feel both empty, like these streets, and yet so full at the same time. And those weren't the only contrasting poles inside me. I felt sad and happy. Scared and exhilarated. I felt young and old.”
Dana Reinhardt, The Summer I Learned to Fly
