"My love, please don’t be afraid but there will come a day when field mice play in our empty sockets,
When our bones become homes for living creatures other than our egos,
And when time jostles our skeletons out of the composition that is me and you,
And will write with us love letters that spell ‘I owe you eternity.’"
"Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still."
