"Piece by piece, I fed my wardrobe to the night wind, and flutteringly, like a loved one’s ashes, the gray scraps were ferried off, to settle here, there, exactly where I would never know, in the dark heart of New York." May 19, 2018 05:25AM

"A park like this resembles a large, silent, isolated room. In fact it’s always Sunday in a park, by the way, for it’s always a bit melancholy, and the melancholy stirs up vivid memories of home, and Sunday is something that only ever existed at home, where you were a child. Sundays have something parental and childish about them." May 17, 2018 06:55AM

"Now was the moment to forget about that door I had walked through without thinking, and about the void that could sometimes be bridged in dreams, and about the way things used to be when my mother was alive. Instead, I clung to them even more tightly than ever, even as I was being drawn willy-nilly into my father's new life." May 16, 2018 09:14AM

Dipankar liked a quote
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
“People were made of nothing so much as dust, and I couldn't see that doctoring all that dust was a bit better than writing poems people would remember and repeat to themselves when they were unhappy or sick and couldn't sleep.”

Gabriel García Márquez
“Then they both kept on knifing him against the door with alternate and easy stabs, floating in the dazzling backwater they had found on the other side of fear.”
Gabriel García Márquez, Chronicle of a Death Foretold

Daniel Keyes
“How strange it is that people of honest feelings and sensibility, who would not take advantage of a man born without arms or legs or eyes—how such people think nothing of abusing a man born with low intelligence.”
Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon

Christopher Hitchens
“I began the project of judging Mother Teresa’s reputation by her actions and words rather than her actions and words by her reputation.”
Christopher Hitchens, The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice

Carson McCullers
“Why? Why was it that in cases of real love the one who is left does not more often follow the beloved by suicide? Only because the living must bury the dead? Because of the measured rites that must be fulfilled after a death? Because it is as though the one who is left steps for a time upon a stage and each second swells to an unlimited amount of time and he id watched by many eyes? Because there is a function he must carry out? Or perhaps, when there is love, the widowed must stay for the resurrection of the beloved - so that the one who has gone is not really dead, but grows and is created for a second time in the soul of the living? Why?”
Carson McCullers, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

Sylvia Plath
“People were made of nothing so much as dust, and I couldn't see that doctoring all that dust was a bit better than writing poems people would remember and repeat to themselves when they were unhappy or sick and couldn't sleep.”
