Michael Ben Zehabe
“Like your marriage, everything in the universe is trying to find its orbit. In the midst of this constant readjustment, both partners should be able to go to bed knowing that neither one is going to abandon a wounded, or struggling marriage. There is a comforting reassurance being with someone who keeps their promise.
pg iv”

Marcus J. Borg
“Our central problem is not sin and guilt, as it is within the monarchical model. For the Spirit model, our central problem is “estrangement,” whose specific meaning of “separated from that to which one belongs” is most appropriate. ... For the monarchical model, sin is primarily disloyalty to the king, seen especially as disobedience to his laws. The metaphors used to express the Spirit model suggest something else. For the metaphor of God as lover, sin is unfaithfulness—that is, sin is going after other lovers.”
Marcus J. Borg, The God We Never Knew: Beyond Dogmatic Religion to a More Authentic Contemporary Faith

Adelheid Manefeldt
“The secret tugs at my sleeve.
A child looking for attention.
It is not a big secret.
But it is not the only one either.
“Strength in numbers” they say.
For they are many.
Many little things that – together –
weigh tonnes.
And take up space.
And are quite noisy.
The way only a lot of whispers can make noise.
And they follow me.
Little secrets
of omission, desire,
and denial.
Of indulgence, hedonism,
and exploration.
Of peeves, passion,
and deep-seated fear.
Little secrets
of despair
and
disrepair
and
prohibited thoroughfare.”
Adelheid Manefeldt, Years: a book of tiny poetry

Yukio Mishima
“Из-за ее спины Эцуко пристально следила за лицом мужа. Она, как медсестра, стояла на страже. Вдруг, чем-то обеспокоенная, Эцуко горько вздохнула: «А что если мой муж нисколечко не любит эту женщину? Стало быть, мои страдания были напрасны? Значит, мы просто дурачили друг друга пустыми забавами? Все это время я одна, как борец сумо, боролась с тенью противника? Если сейчас в глазах мужа не появится хоть малейший признак любви к этой женщине, то я не сойду с этого места! А если он не любил ни эту женщину, ни одну из тех троих, которым я отказала в свидании?.. Ах!.. Как мне быть? Какой жалкий финал!»
Рёсукэ, глядя в потолок, пошевелился под тяжелым одеялом — оно стало понемногу сползать с края кровати. Рёсукэ согнул ноги в коленях. Край одеяла сполз на пол. Женщина отпрянула, напрягшись. Она даже не протянула руки, чтобы поправить одеяло. Это сделала Эцуко, мигом подбежав к постели.
В эти несколько секунд Рёсукэ повернул голову в сторону посетительницы. Эцуко, занятая одеялом, пропустила это мгновение. Однако интуитивно она почувствовала, что муж и эта женщина обменялись взглядами — взглядами, в которых сквозило презрение к ней, Эцуко. Он, больной, почти при смерти, с высокой температурой, улыбнулся и подмигнул этой женщине.”
Yukio Mishima, Thirst for Love
