"Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. In their gray visions they obtain glimpses of eternity, and thrill, in waking, to find that they have been upon the verge of the great secret. In snatches, they learn something of the wisdom which is of good, and more of the mere knowledge which is of evil." — Edgar Allan Poe

“What is so ghastly about exposed intestines? Why, when we see the insides of a human being, do we have to cover our eyes in terror? Why are people so shocked at the sight of blood pouring out? Why are a man’s intestines ugly? Is it not exactly the same in quality as the beauty of youthful, glossy skin? …Why does there seem to be something inhuman about regarding human beings like roses and refusing to make any distinction between the inside of their bodies and the outside? If only human beings could reverse their spirits and their bodies, could gracefully turn them inside out like rose petals and expose them to the spring breeze and to the sun….”

heard this several times since I was a kid. most of the time it came from people who didn’t read or read as much as I did. a few times it came from some who thought it silly to have tons of books. to be honest, I look at the books I’ve retained over the years and it doesn’t seem like I’ve saved…

Charmless.

Extracare: to splice and splite, to rend and dice.

“Sometimes at night I leave the lights on in my little house and walk across the flat fields. When I look back from a distance, the house looks like a boat on the sea. It’s really the only time I feel safe.”
