My absolute favorite quote right now:

There?s this place in me where your fingerprints still rest, your kisses still linger, and your whispers softly echo.  It?s the place where a part of you will forever be a part of me.
Gretchen Kemp

"Only in silence, the word
Only in dark, the light
Only in dying, life
Bright the hawk's flight on the empty sky.

"A Wizard of Earthsea"

?Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.?

?If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.?
― A.A. Milne

"Implicit in poetry is the notion that we are deepened by heartbreaks, that we are not so much diminished as enlarged by grief, by our refusal to vanish--to let others vanish--without leaving a verbal record."

Edward Hirsch, American poet and critic

To everyone here that has made it this far.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.?


― Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Thank you for helping each other through this time.

Forget your perfect offering.

There is a crack
         A crack
    In everything
   That's how the       
    Light gets in...

You must go on.
           
            I can't go on.
 
            I'll go on.


-Samuel Beckett, last lines of The Unnamable, as cited in Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air

This is one of the things that made so much sense to me from the beginning.  I was shattered, I was broken.  Broken enough to let the light in.

 "She died at home with me and her parents holding her, hopefully having reach some last minute peace.  It's all very sad and surreal. So much is left unfinished for her. She was a firehose of brilliant ideas that never turned off. We loved her and everything is weird now. "

- Phil Elverum




Boy does this one speak to me...
