“Her hair, brown.
Her speciality, damage.”
Laura Mullen

“Love can only consist in failure...on the fallacious assumption that it is a relationship. But it is not. It is a production of truth.”
Alain Badiou, Conditions

“Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed ... We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in.”
Wallace Stegner, The Sound of Mountain Water

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity”
John Muir, Our National Parks

“Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to was never there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it. Where is there a place for you to be? No place... Nothing outside you can give you any place... In yourself right now is all the place you've got.”
Flannery O'Connor, Wise Blood
