“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that receives it.”
Edith Wharton

“Coraline knew that when grown-ups told you something wouldn’t hurt it almost always did.”
Neil Gaiman

Edna O'Brien
“Darkness is drawn to light, but light does not know it; light must absorb the darkness and therefore meet its own extinguishment.”
Edna O'Brien, In the Forest

Stephen King
“In a book, all would have gone according to plan... but life was so fucking untidy — what could you say for an existence where some of the most crucial conversations of your life took place when you needed to take a shit, or something? An existence where there weren't even any chapters?”
Stephen King, Misery

Edith Wharton
“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that receives it.”
Edith Wharton

“You’re not doing well and finally I don’t have to
pretend to be so interested in your on going tragedy,

but

I’ll rob the bank that gave you the impression that
money is more fruitful than words, and
I’ll cut holes in the ozone if it means you have one less day of rain.
I’ll walk you to the hospital,
I’ll wait in a white room that reeks of hand sanitizer and latex for the results from the MRI scan that tries to
locate the malady that keeps your mind guessing, and
I want to write you a poem every day until my hand breaks
and assure you that you’ll find your place,
it’s just
the world has a funny way of
hiding spots fertile enough for
bodies like yours to grow roots.

and

I miss you like a dart hits the iris of a bullseye,
or a train ticket screams 4:30 at 4:47, I
wanted to tell you that it’s my birthday on Thursday
and I would have wanted you to
give me the gift of your guts on the floor, one last time,
to see if you still had it in you.

I hope our ghosts aren’t eating you alive.
If I’m to speak for myself, I’ll tell you that
the universe is twice as big as we think it is
and you’re the only one that made that idea
less devastating.”
Lucas Regazzi
