“Consider a small child sitting on his mother's lap while she reads him a picture book. The picture book opens to a width that effectively places the child at the center of a closed circle - that of mother's body, arms, and the picture book... That circle, so private and intimate, is a place apart form the demands and stresses of daily life, a sanctuary in and from which the child can explore the many worlds offered in picture books. Despite all of our society's technological advances, it still just takes one child, one book, and one reader, to create this unique space, to work this everyday magic.”
Martha Parravano

George Eliot

George Eliot, Middlemarch

Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“Stop entertaining two faced people. You know the ones who have split personalities and untrustworthy habits. Nine times out of ten if they telling you stuff about another person, they're going to tell your business to other people. If they say, "You know I heard........." More than likely it's in their character to share false information. Beware of your box, circle, square! Whatever you want to call it.”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana, Sweet Destiny

“In a swamp, as in meditation, you begin to glimpse how elusive, how inherently insubstantial, how fleeting our thoughts are, our identities. There is magic in this moist world, in how the mind lets go, slips into sleepy water, circles and nuzzles the banks of palmetto and wild iris, how it seeps across dreams, smears them into the upright world, rots the wood of treasure chests, welcomes the body home.”
Barbara Hurd, Stirring the Mud: On Swamps, Bogs, and Human Imagination

“After you hear and listen. First must come desire. Second must come willingness.

“We are all joined in a circle of stories.”
Linda Joy Myers, Journey of Memoir: The Three Stages of Memoir Writing

“Death is nature's way of making things continually interesting. Death is the possibility of change. Every individual gets its allotted lifespan, its chance to try something new on the world. But time is called and the molecules which make up leaf and limb, heart and eye are disassembled and redistributed to other tenants.”
Peter Steinhart, The Company of Wolves

“The truth is sealed.
Life goes on.
Till one day, history changed...
Like thief in the night,
aliens invade human.
Chaos happens prior to the new order of coexistence.
The truth is sealed.
Life goes on.
Till one day, history changed.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Marlen Haushofer

Holly Ringland
“Oggi went to his mother's rose garden and gathered a collection of fallen petals and leaves. When his hands were full he carried them back to Alice and placed them on the dirt around her. Back and forth he went, between the rose garden and Alice, until his circle was complete. He jumped inside it and sat down.
'After my dad died I did this to make myself feel better.' Oggi wrapped his arms around his knees. 'I told myself, anything inside the circle is safe from sadness. I'd make the circle as big or as little as I'd like. Once when Mum wouldn't stop crying I made a circle around the whole house. Except I had to use all of the petals on her roses to do that, and she didn't react the way I thought she would.'
Yellow butterflies fluttered over the roses. As Alice watched their wings, tiny lemon flames, she remembered how they hovered over the sea in summer, basked in the casuarina trees, and tapped against her bedroom window at night.”
Holly Ringland, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

“If the whole of the spacetime world originates in a Cosmic Mind (Cosmic Singularity) then every part of spacetime is connected to the Mind, just as every part of our spacetime body is connected to our mind/soul, just as the centre of a circle can, via any radius, reach any point on the circle’s circumference. The centre of the Cosmic Circle is the Cosmic Mind and everything outside is the Cosmic Body (Universe). What could be more straightforward?”
Jack Tanner, The Ghost Dimension

“If you are not getting the right people to fulfil your dreams it means you are in the wrong circle”

Alan Moore
“Everything is made of stories. They've all happened before, in similar circumstances. It's like a circle. It goes round and round and round.”

J.L.  Haynes
“Leave the train!”
More soldiers meet Fez and his loyal companion, “This way,” one shouts, “step into the circle!” Fez glances down, at a large circle scribed into the ground, and walks into the centre with Gnash skittering in behind him, at which point he addresses the soldiers.
“Did you know the philosopher Gurdjieff wrote about his encounters with the Yezidis—how he once saw a Yezidi boy distraught, struggling to break out of a circle drawn in the ground by other boys. Try as he might the boy just couldn’t step outside of the circle. The other boys teased and taunted him until Gurdjieff erased part of the circle, whereby the boy was able to escape. Perhaps the philosopher wants us to think carefully about the Yezidis—perhaps you should think carefully about me.” Out of the floor a circular glass wall made of toughened glass shoots up, stopping at a circular lip in the ceiling, trapping them like a ship in a bottle. “A prison—how quaint, never been in a prison before. When do I get my medication?” No one answers, but Fez spies a security camera in the ceiling and stares into its lens. “You think that I think you can’t hear me, but I know that you don’t know I can.”
“What’s he on about?” one of the operators asks in the control room.
“Something about us hearing him.”
J.L. Haynes, Zara Hanson & The Mystery of the Painted Symbol
