Charles Manson

Living is what scares me. Dying is easy.

E.E. Cummings

it is so long since my heart has been with yours

shut by our mingling arms through a darkness where new lights begin and
since your mind has walked into
my kiss as a stranger
into the streets and colours of a town-

that i have perhaps forgotten
how, always (from
these hurrying crudities
of blood and flesh) Love
coins His most gradual gesture,

and whittles life to eternity

-after which our separating selves become museums
filled with skillfully stuffed memories

To A Stranger- Walt Whitman

Passing stranger! you do not know
How longingly I look upon you,
You must be he I was seeking,
Or she I was seeking(It comes to me as a dream)
I have somewhere surely
Lived a life of joy with you,
All is recall'd as we flit by each other,
Fluid, affectionate, chaste, matured,
You grew up with me,
Were a boy with me or a girl with me,
I ate with you and slept with you, your body has become
not yours only nor left my body mine only,
You give me the pleasure of your eyes,face, flesh as we pass,
You take of my beard, breast, hands,in return,
I am not to speak to you, I am to think of you
when I sit alone or wake at night,
aloneI am to wait, I do not doubt I am to meet you again
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.

why try to say it yourself?

So I thought, "yeah, original thoughts are good, but sometimes something has already been said, and no one could say it better." So here's a place to share quotes, lyrics, anything you think is worth reading and considering.

I often find inspiration for my own writing through other's...

"In the sphere of thought, absurdity and perversity remain the masters of the world, and their dominion is suspended only for brief periods."
-Arthur Schopenhauer
