In other words

I used to have a page on here with quotes and pictures. Here are the quotes:

Shock! It’s as though his soul has touched
me as his arm leans on mine. The electric

— Marina Tsvetaeva, Poem of the End

even an hour, but some span all but unmeasurable as we measure time, between two moments—, when you existed. Everything. Veins full of existence.
— Rainer Maria Rilke, The Seventh Elegy
Words and eggs must be handled with care.
Once broken they are impossible
things to repair.
— Anne Sexton, Words

— Søren Kierkegaard, The Sickness unto Death

— Lord Byron, I Would I Were a Careless Child

— Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
