Collapse This

“ 'And now let me close my eyes once again to follow in dreams the backward path far beyond all noise and numbers, falling into that world where I am the brother of silence and share a single face with the void.' ”

"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.

I spotted this earlier today in the random quotation block as I logged out of TLO. What a delightful bedtime prayer this would make for children. It is much more comforting than that old "if I should die before I wake" business...

"Like a dog!" he said; it was as if the shame of it must outlive him. - Franz Kafka, The Trial
