Agnostic Zetetic
“Relinquishing control to another person is like death: it’s only scary until it finally happens.”
Agnostic Zetetic

Robert Jackson Bennett
“Forgetting... is a beautiful thing. When you forget, you remake yourself... For a caterpillar to become a butterfly, it must forget it was a caterpillar at all. Then it will be as if the caterpillar never was & there was only ever a butterfly.”
Robert Jackson Bennett, City of Stairs

Stephen King
“She looks like a woman who just got laid . . . and had about three orgasms.”
Stephen King, Needful Things: The Last Castle Rock Story

Anaïs Nin
“Over and over again I sail towards joy, which is never in the room with me, but always near me, across the way, like those rooms full of gayety one sees from the street, or the gayety in the street one sees from a window. Will I ever reach joy? It hides behind the turning merry-go-round of the traveling circus. As soon as I approach it, it is no longer joy. Joy is a foam, an illumination. I am poorer and hungrier for the want of it. When I am in the dance, joy is outside in the elusive garden. When I am in the garden, I hear it exploding from the house. When I am traveling, joy settles like an aurora borealis over the land I leave. When I stand on the shore I see it bloom on the flag of a departing ship. What joy? Have I not possessed it? I want the joy of simple colours, street organs, ribbons, flags, not a joy that takes my breath away and throws me into space alone where no one else can breathe with me, not the joy that comes from a lonely drunkenness. There are so many joys, but I have only known the ones that come like a miracle, touching everything with light.”
Anaïs Nin, Mirages: The Unexpurgated Diary of Anais Nin

“0 plus 100 equals 100. But so does 50 plus 50, only with more balance. Let this be a lesson in love.”
