" I will always remember this, she tells herself. Then: Why am I thinking about memory? It’s not then yet, it’s now. It’s not over. "
-Margaret Atwood, from The Blind Assassin (thank you, aubade)
" I hope you will forgive me if I use the word “truth.” The moment I say “truth” I expect people to ask: “What is truth?” “Does truth exist?” Let us imagine that it exists. The word exists, therefore the feeling exists. "
Helene Cixous, from Three Steps on the Ladder of Writing, translated by Sarah Cornell & Susan Sellers.
The word exists, therefore the feeling exists.
" I think I might always be in some kind of love with you. "
-F. Cabanes (via moralist)
