"Of all man’s instruments, the most wondrous, no doubt, is the book. The other instruments are extensions of his body. The microscope, the telescope, are extensions of his sight; the telephone is the extension of his voice; then we have the plow and the sword, extensions of the arm. But the book is something else altogether: the book is an extension of memory and imagination."
- Jorge Luis Borges 
"I answer one of your letters, then lie in bed in apparent calm, but my heart beats through my entire body and is conscious only of you."
- Franz Kafka, Letters to Felice
"My first love
was some insignificant boy
when it should have been
myself."
- Michelle K., First Love.

"I am that clumsy human, always loving, loving, loving. And loving. And never leaving."
