Mary Shelley
“I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.”
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Ryan Mecum
“Blood is really warm,
it's like drinking hot chocolate
but with more screaming.”
Ryan Mecum, Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry for Your...Brains
