“You get lonely, is what it is. A person's not supposed to go through life with absolutely nobody. It's not normal. The longer you go by yourself the weirder you get, and the weirder you get the longer you go by yourself. It's a loop and you gotta do something to get out of it.”
Jim Shepard

“What makes us threaten the things we want most?”
Jim Shepard, My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales

“It turns out that our intuition is a greater genius than we are.”
Jim Shepard
