Leah Raeder, Cam Girl

“A relationship that is truly genuine does not keep changing its colors. Real gold never rusts. If a relationship is really solid and golden, it will be unbreakable. Not even Time can destroy its shine.”

Flannery O'Connor
“His friends told him that nobody was interested in his goddam soul unless it was the priest and he managed to answer that no priest taking orders from no pope was going to tamper with his soul. They told him he didn't have any soul and left for the brothel.

He took a long time to believe them because he wanted to believe them. All he wanted was to believe them and get rid of it once and for all, and he saw opportunity here to get rid of it without corruption, to be converted to nothing instead of to evil. The army sent him halfway around the world and forgot him. He was wounded and they remembered him long enough to take the shrapnel out of his chest - they said they took it out but they never showed it to him and he felt it still in there, rusted, and poisoning him - and then they sent him to another desert and forgot him again. He had all the time he could want to study his soul in and assure himself that it was not there. When he was thoroughly convinced, he saw that this was something that he had always known.”
Flannery O'Connor, Wise Blood

Craig Davidson
“Twenty-seven bones make up the human hand. Lunate and capitate and navicular, scaphoid, and triquetrum, the tiny horn-shaped pisiforms of the outer wrist. Though different in shape and density each is smoothly aligned and flush-fitted, lashed by a meshwork of ligatures running under the skin. All vertebrates share a similar set of bones, and all bones grow out of the same tissue: a bird's wing, a whale's dorsal fine, a gecko's pad, your own hand. Bust an arm or leg and the knitting bone's sealed in a wrap of calcium so it's stronger than before. Bust a bone in your hand and it never heals right.”
Craig Davidson, Rust and Bone: Stories

Herman Koch
“Het geluk van het thuisblijven. Veel mensen beseffen niet dat ze zichzelf doodongelukkig maken met hun reizen naar alsmaar exotischer bestemmingen. Die wens bestond vroeger helemaal niet. Een enkeling - een avonturier, een ontdekkingsreiziger - trok eropuit maar negenennegentig procent van de mensheid bleef thuis en was daar buitengewoon gelukkig mee. De rust van het eigen dorp, een zonsopgang, een zonsondergang, de wisseling van de seizoenen, vogels die een nest bouwen, de eieren die uitkomen, de jonge vogeltje die voor het eerst uitvliegen; daarvoor hoef je niet naar Thailand of de zuidpunt van Chili. De tijd stilzetten, daar gaat het om. Jezelf stilzetten. Wie zichzelf stilzet ziet hoe de wereld om hem heen beweegt.”
Herman Koch
