They learn to hide from their selves.” ~ Bessel van der Kolk

Packer

Once you realize your own unassailable being, you will be at peace.” ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Every time you place a book in the hands of a child, you do the same thing. It is very risky. But each time a child opens a book, he pushes open the gate that separates him from Elsewhere.

  56. “The detachment of the artist is kind of creepy. It’s kind of rude, and yet really it’s where art comes from. It’s not the same as courage. It’s closer to bad manners than to courage. If you’re going to be a writer, you basically have to say, ‘this is just who I am’. There’s a certain indefensibility about it. It’s not about loving your community and taking care of it — you’re not attached to the chamber of commerce. It’s a little unsafe. You have to be willing to have only four friends, not 11.” ~ Lorrie Moore
  57. “I wrote about drugs, and I didn’t think I was being unsafe or careless by writing about them. I didn’t want fans to think heroin was cool. But then I’ve had fans come up to me and give me the thumbs up, telling me they’re high. That’s exactly what I didn’t want to happen.” ~ Layne Staley
