Jim Thompson
“I looked at her, with her hair spilled out on the pillows and the warmth of her body warming mine. And I thought, god-dang, if this ain't a heck of a way to be in bed with a pretty woman. The two of you arguing about murder, and threatening each other, when you're supposed to be in love and you could be doing something pretty nice. And then I thought, well, maybe it ain't so strange after all. Maybe it's like this with most people, everyone doing pretty much the same thing except in a different way. And all the time they're holding heaven in their hands.”
Jim Thompson, Pop. 1280

“Practically every fella that breaks the law has a danged good reason, to his own way of thinking, which makes every case exceptional, not just one or two. Take you, for example.”
Jim Thompson, Pop. 1280

Søren Kierkegaard
“A poet is not an apostle; he drives out devils only by the power of the devil.”
Søren Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling/Repetition

Ernest Becker
“The road to creativity passes so close to the madhouse and often detours or ends there.”
Ernest Becker, The Denial of Death

“Through photography and image I have been afforded the privilege of sharing the stories and myths of people's lives with others. The process for me became self-revelatory. It was a process of soul-making, something all humans are engaged in, no matter their endeavor. I saw a part of myself in each person I photographed. I came to realize, through the alchemical process of living, that each life is important, no matter how little that life seems to offer.”
J. Don Cook, Shooting from the Hip: Photographs and Essays
