Now I Know

“From barren brown stems to glistening leaf-buds; from the leaf-buds to snowy virginity of bloom… It was like a flute song forgotten in another existence and remembered again. What? How? Why? This singing she heard that had nothing to do with her ears. The rose of the world was breathing out smell. It followed her through all her waking moments and caressed her in her sleep.”
— Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Accidentally On Purpose

“Outside, the ocean was crashing, waves hitting sand, then pulling back to sea. I thought of everything being washed away, again and again. We make such messes in this life, both accidentally and on purpose. But wiping the surface clean doesn’t really make anything neater. It just masks what is below. It’s only when you really dig down deep, go underground, that you can see who you really are.”
— Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye
