“Keep cool but care”
Thomas Pynchon, V.

Amelia Gray
“[Olive’s] left foot was bleeding through a wide swath of bandages onto the tarp it was resting on. The bowl next to her was full of blood.
Olive looked a little pale. “I don’t think I should move,” she said.
“What are you doing?” Roger shut the door behind him and stood with his back to it.
“I decided I might try to eat my toes,” Olive said, closing her eyes. “But now that I’ve started, I don’t think I should move.”
Roger pushed himself off the wall and knelt down next to her. He unbuckled her silver belt and reached with it under her dress. He looped the belt around the top of her leg and tightened it. His hands were not shaking.
“Sit on the loose end,” he said, pushing it under her. “I hope that works.”
“You brought flowers,” she said, blinking.
“Olive,” he said. “You cut off your toes.”
She looked down at the bowl. “Are they still toes?” she asked.”
Amelia Gray, Museum of the Weird

Walt Whitman
“Do anything, but let it produce joy.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Annie Dillard
“We live in all we seek.”
Annie Dillard, For the Time Being

Walter Kaufmann
“Man stands alone in the universe, responsible for his condition, likely to remain in a lowly state, but free to reach above the stars.”
Walter Kaufmann, Existentialism from Dostoevsky to Sartre
