    It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in.

    Ricky Fitts
    American Beauty

    The X-FIles

    This time I read the title of the painting: "Girl Interrupted at Her Music".
    Interrupted at her music: as my life had been, interrupted in the music of being seventeen, as her life had been, snatched and fixed on canvas: one moment made to stand still and to stand for all the other moments, whatever they would be or might have been. What life can recover from that?

    Susanna Kaysen
    Girl, Interrupted

    MORPHEUS: I am a spider, fly-consuming, eight legged.
    CHORONZON: I am a snake, spider-devouring, posion-toothed.
    MORPHEUS: I am an ox, snake-crushing, heavy footed.
    CHORONZON: I am an anthrax, butcher, bacterium, warm-life destroying.
    MORPHEUS: I am a world, space-floating, life nurturing.
    CHORONZON: I am a nova, all-exploding... planet-cremating.
    MORPHEUS: I am the Universe -- all things encompassing, all life embracing.
    CHORONZON: I am Anti-Life, the Beast of Judgement. I am the dark at the end of everything. The end of universes, gods, worlds... of everything. Sss. And what will you be then, Dreamlord?
    MORPHEUS: I am hope.

    Preludes & Nocturnes- A Hope In Hell
    Neil Gaiman

    Birdsong, wind,
    the water's face.
    Each flower, remembering the smell;
    I know you're close by.
