“To live (as I understand it) is to exist within a conception of time.

But to remember is to vacate the very notion of time.

Every memory, no matter how remote its subject, takes place 'Now,' at the moment it's called to the mind.

The more something is recalled, the more the brain has a chance to refine the original experience.

Because every memory is a re-creation, not a playback.”
David Mazzucchelli, Asterios Polyp

“Life is stressful,dear. That's why they say "rest in peace.”
David Mazzucchelli

“How can we call death-about which we know nothing- the opposite of life, when we barely comprehend life itself?”
David Mazzucchelli, Asterios Polyp
