Sylvia Plath
“God, but life is loneliness, despite all the opiates, despite the shrill tinsel gaiety of "parties" with no purpose, despite the false grinning faces we all wear. And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter - they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long. Yes, there is joy, fulfillment and companionship - but the loneliness of the soul in its appalling self-consciousness is horrible and overpowering.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Mahmoud Darwish
“هكذا تولد الكلماتُ . أُدرِّبُ قلبي
على الحب كي يَسَعَ الورد والشوكَ ...
صوفيَّةٌ مفرداتي . وحسِّيَّةٌ رغباتي
ولستُ أنا مَنْ أنا الآن إلاَّ
إذا التقتِ الاثنتان ِ :
أَنا ، وأَنا الأنثويَّةُ
يا حُبّ ! ما أَنت ؟ كم أنتَ أنتَ
ولا أنتَ . يا حبّ ! هُبَّ علينا
عواصفَ رعديّةً كي نصير إلى ما تحبّ
لنا من حلول السماويِّ في الجسديّ .
وذُبْ في مصبّ يفيض من الجانبين .
فأنت - وإن كنت تظهر أَو تَتَبطَّنُ -
لا شكل لك
ونحن نحبك حين نحبُّ مصادفةً
أَنت حظّ المساكين”
محمود درويش

William  Boyd
“Loss adjusters are noble men who frustrate and negate the bland promises of insurance. We act out of the great unbending principles in life: nothing is sure, nothing is certain, nothing is free, nothing is forever. It is a noble calling.”
William Boyd, Armadillo
