Post To Find That You Have Had So Many Names

Quote ( View Quotes )
Collapse This

“ To find that you have had so many names is to lose the claim to any one of them. To gain the memory of so many lives is to lose them all. ”

"What does it mean to be alive except to court disaster and suffering at every moment?"

Tibet: Carnivals?
Ligotti: Ceremonies for initiating children into the cult of the sinister.
Tibet: Gas stations?
Ligotti: Nothing to say about gas stations as such, although I've always responded to the smell of gasoline as if it were a kind of perfume.

Re: To Find That You Have Had So Many Names

There's something about this quote that has haunted me since reading it; but even 'me' is a name ... and I shudder.
