“Most of us carry around the extravagant hope that the world can at least catch a glimpse of what we consider to be our true face. We can't help harbouring the desire that past achievements and former incarnations still reveal some glimpse of themselves on our person. That people might be able to read the history of a face and not just its live bulletins.”
Glenn Haybittle, Scorched Earth

“Too much joy, I swear, is lost in our desperation to keep it.”
Ocean Vuong, On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

Ocean Vuong
“Remember: The rules, like streets, can only take you to known places.”
