Julio Cortázar
“It’s impossible to want what I want and in the shape I want it, and share life with others besides. I had to know how to be alone and how to let so much wanting do its work, save me or destroy me…”
Julio Cortázar, Hopscotch

Clarice Lispector
“Do you ever suddenly find it strange to be yourself?”
Clarice Lispector, A Breath of Life

“Home is where I take up such a tiny portion of the memory foam; home is a splintered word. His pillow is a sweat-stained map of an escape plot, also a map of love’s dear abandon. (When did he give way, at which breath?) Forgiveness may mean retrospectively abandoning the pillow and abandoning the photograph of someone with curious eyes, kissing my toes, poolside. I paint my toes Big Apple Red. I don’t know what to do about the shock of red nails on clean, white tiles except get used to it. (And when he gave way, was there room for feelings or the words for feeling?) While I brush my teeth, I can see him in my periphery at the other sink. The outline of him lulls and stings. (And when he gave way, was it the end of the beginning of suffering?) I draw his profile near, I make him brush his teeth with me, he spits and makes a mess. I could love another face, but why?”
Karen Green

Clarice Lispector
“I just know that I don't want cheating. I refuse. I deepened myself but I don't believe in myself because my thought is invented.”
Clarice Lispector, The Stream Of Life

Bell Hooks
“A generous heart is always open, always ready to receive our going and coming. In the midst of such love we need never fear abandonment. This is the most precious gift true love offers - the experience of knowing we always belong.”
Bell Hooks, All About Love: New Visions
