"If you only have two minutes at least give yourself the gift of reading page 204 - 208, if you only have five seconds, then at least know this: This rock is loose. From this place the snow is less visible, even though closer.
To live only for some future goal is shallow.
It's the sides of the mountain which sustain life, not the top.
Here's where things grow. But of course, without the top you can't have any sides"

Aleister Crowley
“It seemed to her as if her body were altogether too heavy for her; she had the feeling so well known to opium- smokers, which they call "clou'e 'a terre." It is as if the body clung desperately to the earth, by its own weight, and yet in the same way as a tired child nestles to its mother's breast. In this sensation there is a perfect lassitude mingled with a perfect longing. It may be that it is the counterpart of the freedom of the soul of which it is the herald and companion.”
Aleister Crowley, Moonchild

Franz Kafka
“I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.”
Franz Kafka

Albert Camus
“L'absurde naît de la confrontation entre l'appel humain et le silence déraisonnable du monde.”
Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays

Philip K. Dick
“Just tell me why; why the fucking why?" To which the universe would hollowly respond, "My ways cannot be known, oh man." Which is to say, "My ways do not make sense, nor do the ways of those who dwell in me.”
Philip K. Dick, VALIS

Kelly Moran
“Considering I'm a writer, you leave me strangely bereft of words.”
Kelly Moran, All of Me
