“When I am perfect, I will be allowed to leave.”
Damien Walters Grintalis, Electric Velocipede 25

“Violet carved her hate into her flesh one name at a time.”
Damien Walters Grintalis, Fireside Magazine Summer 2012 Issue 2

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear.”
Stephen King, Different Seasons

“You pay for what you get, you own what you pay for... and sooner or later whatever you own comes back home to you.”
Stephen King, It
