Peter Carey
“She held out her hand, like a man. He hesitated, then took the hand and shook it. It was very warm. You could not help but be aware of the wild passage of blood on the other side of its wall, veins, capillaries, sweat glands, tiny factories in the throes of complicated manufacture. [He] looked at the eyes and, knowing how eyes worked, was astonished, not for the first time, at the infinite complexity of Creation, wondering how this thing, this instrument for seeing, could transmit so clearly its entreaty while at the same time—-Look, I am only an eye—-denying that it was doing anything of the sort.”
Peter Carey, Oscar and Lucinda

Claudia Rankine
“Or one meaning of here is “in this world, in this life, on earth. In this place or position, indicating the presence of,” or in other words, I am here. It also means to hand something to somebody—Here you are. Here, he said to her. Here both recognizes and demands recognition. I see you, or here, he said to her. In order for something to be handed over a hand must extend and a hand must receive. We must both be here in this world in this life in this place indicating the presence of.”

“And then, in a skittering, chittering rush, it came. The hand, running high on its fingertips, scrabbled through the tall grass and up onto a tree stump. It stood there for a moment, like crab tasting the air, and then it made one triumphant, nail-clacking leap onto the center of the tablecloth.
Time slowed for Coraline. The white fingers closed around the black key....”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Corinne Beenfield
“She had never seen him in pain before, not the soul kind. Yet he was now, and the longer he seemed left to his thoughts, the more it drenched him. Helen felt as if she didn’t know how to reach him, just knew she must try.

Her hand trembled as she raised it, and lowered it on top of his. It was not a careless touch—are they ever? But first touches hold an energy of their own, and Helen felt it surging from her. Giving, she hoped, some relief. Giving and not taking. That’s what she told herself. But when he pulled his hand back from under hers, she knew it hadn’t all been a gift. She had wanted something in return.”
Corinne Beenfield, The Ocean's Daughter

“As we grow up our sense of reality begins to change. How we used to perceive things as a child, fades away like a distant dream. And you are introduced to a bizarre idea of the never ending race for survival.

They tell you "survival is key", "survival of the fittest", "you have to survive", " keep surviving", so on and so forth.

But let me ask you a basic question.

Survival from what? My dear, there is no apocalypses you have to overcome its just life and life is beautiful no matter what set colors you hold in your hands.

So, live with all your heart, and dont just survive.”
Bushra Zainab

Ashim Shanker
“Why indeed does the hand experience such difficulty in rendering itself? ...It is a tragedy, or perhaps a boon, that the form should never know itself or approach anything resembling itself without warping the parameters of its being. Awareness is thusly obliteration and through reproduction of this intuitive knowing, the self is contaminated, and thereby annihilated.”
Ashim Shanker, Inward and Toward

Anna Akhmatova
“But on that pale hand is no ring of mine,
To no one will I give it, ever.
The new moon’s golden beam forged it for me,
And slipping it on in my sleep, whispered to
me entreatingly;
“Treasure this gift, be proud of the dream!”
I won’t give the ring to anyone, ever.”
Anna Akhmatova
