I need to learn how to stop destroying myself, stop being hard on myself and be nice to myself.

—Daul Kim (via sad-empty)

My brother once showed me a piece of quartz that contained, he said, some trapped water older than all the seas in our world. He held it up to my ear. ‘Listen,’ he said, ‘life and no escape.’

—Anne Carson, from Plainwater: Essays and Poetry (Alfred A. Knopf, 1995)
