“We are no guiltier

in following
the primative impulses
that govern us
than is the Nile
for her floods
or the sea
for her waves.”

― Marquis de Sade, Aline et Valcour

“I cannot make you understand.

I cannot make anyone understand
what is happening inside me.
I cannot even explain it to myself.”
— Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis

"So you think
you can stone me
and spit in my eye

So you think
you can love me
and leave me to die
Oh baby -
can't do this to me baby
I just gotta get out -
just gotta get right outta here

"I can't bear the thought

that many hundreds
of millions of people
dying in agony
only and solely
because the rulers
of the world
are stupid and wicked."

-- Bertrand Russell

"Poison is in everything,

and no thing
is without poison.
The dosage makes it
either a poison
or a remedy."
