"A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous"
"All language is but a poor translation"
"Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence [...] They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
-Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora
"You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on Earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness."
-Louise Erdrich The Painted Drum
"Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere"
