"People are sewn into their skins for life and cannot alter any of the seams, at least not with their own hands."
- Franz Kafka

"Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing." - Sylvia Plath

"Life passes. The clouds change perpetually over our houses. I do this, do that, and again do this and then that. Meeting and parting, we assemble different forms, make different patterns.

- Virginia Woolf
