“I had never understood before the invisibility of a human. How what we take to be a person is in fact a spirit we can never see.”
Adam Haslett, Imagine Me Gone

“He experienced a familiar comfort being in the presence of another person's unknowable pain. More than any landscape, this place felt like home.”
Adam Haslett, You Are Not a Stranger Here

“There is no getting better. There is love I cannot bear, which has kept me from drifting entirely loose. There are the medicines I can take that flood my mind without discrimination, slowing the monster, moving the struggle underwater, where I then must live in the murk. But there is no killing the beast. Since I was a young man, it has haunted me. And it will hunt me until I am dead. The older I become, the closer it gets.”
Adam Haslett, Imagine Me Gone
