'I am glad the rain is coming down hard.
It's the way I feel inside.'

'I talk to God but the sky is empty.'

'I can see every now and then how one must live in this world even if one's true full soul is not with one.'

'I am in great pain, and another shell of the so circumscribed understanding is shattered.'

'If I didn't think, I'd be much happier; if I didn't have any sex organs I wouldn't waver on the brink of nervous emotion and tears all the time.'

'I am not solid, but hollow.'

'I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am.'

'And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.'
