"Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they can succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky"
Rilke via Jon
"…just like the light hidden under a bushel: a light shining in the dark is not trying to conceal itself. The body is an image of the mind, which, like an effulgent light scattering forth its rays, is diffused through its members and senses, shining through in action, discourse, appearance, movement - even in laughter if it is completely sincere and tinged with gravity"

"A moment later, above a black, jagged mass of trees, the house lifted its stark square bulk against the failing sky"
Faulkner, Sanctuary p7
"You lied about the stars
Each one is a setting sun"
"theres a bad moon and he ate all the stars up and got too dark"
"My belly told me it wanted those tiny bits"
"No matter what you touch and you wish to know about, you end up in a sea of mystery. You see there’s no beginning or end, you can go back as far as you want, forward as far as you want, but you never got to it, it’s like the essence, it’s that right, it remains. This is the greatest damn thing about the universe. That we can know so much, recognize so much, dissect, do everything, and we can’t grasp it. And it’s meant to be that way, do y’know. And there’s where our reverence should come in. Before everything, the littlest thing as well as the greatest. The tiniest, the horseshit, as well as the angels, do y’know what I mean. It’s all mystery. All impenetrable, as it were, right?"
