Book cover for Venom & Ecstasy (Venom, #2)
It’s a darkness that sweeps over, a shadow that you can’t get rid of. It claims your soul for life.
Robert Frost
“These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
Robert Frost, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Charlotte Eriksson
“Don’t forget that the land is always out there, making its way, doing everything it can so you can breathe fresh air; so you can eat fresh food; so you can move and see and feel and think, and it’s on your side. The world is out there doing what it’s been doing way before you came here, it’s firm and strong and it takes a lot to bring it down.
so from time to time, just go outside and look at this spectacle. This pure painting right in front of your eyes. No one created it. No one owns it. It doesn’t want anything. It doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. It simply is.
So maybe, try a little tenderness. Just give it a chance to do what it can do. Just let it help you
and eat
and move
and see
and maybe just try to live your life in a way that doesn’t kill this force of nature
that is just trying to give you a world worth living in. A clean world. A fresh world.
Paths, forests, oceans, animals, oxygen, water. That’s all it takes.

Just try a little tenderness towards this world we’ve been lucky enough to build our homes on.
If you take care of it, it will take care of you.”
Charlotte Eriksson

Tony Kushner
“In this world, there is a kind of painful progress. Longing for what we've left behind, and dreaming ahead.”
Tony Kushner, Perestroika

Abigail Van Buren
“The best index to a person's character is how he treats people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people who can't fight back.”
Abigail Van Buren

Wole Soyinka
“The greatest threat to freedom is the absence of criticism.”
Wole Soyinka
