"A world in which there are monsters, and ghosts, and things that want to steal your heart is a world in which there are angels, and dreams and a world in which there is hope."
— Neil Gaiman (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
"A Pang is more conspicuous in Spring
In constant with the things that sing
Not Birds entirely — but Minds —
Minute Effulgencies and Winds —
When what they sung for is undone
Who cares about a Blue Bird’s Tune —
Why, Resurrection had to wait
Till they had moved a Stone —"
— Emily Dickinson, #1530 (1881)

"I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness. And yet I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them."
