    “Have your dream, (Satsuki),” Nimit said as if sharing kindly advice. (…) "Cast off mere words. Words turn into stone."

    (…)

    “My Norwegian employer was actually from Lapland,” he said. “You must know, of course, that Lapland is at the northern-most tip of Norway, near the North Pole. (…) In summer there is no night, and in winter no day. He probably came to Thailand because the cold got to be too much for him. (…) But still, to the day he died, he missed the town in Lapland where he was born. He used to tell me about it all the time. And yet, in spite of that, he never once went back to Norway in thirty-three years. Something must have happened there that kept him away. He was another person with a stone inside.”

    Nimit lifted his coffee cup and took a sip, then carefully set it in its saucer again without a sound.

    “He once told me about polar bears – what solitary animals they are. They mate just once a year. One time in a whole year. There is no such thing as a lasting male-female bond in their world. One male polar bear and one female polar bear meet by sheer chance somewhere in the frozen vastness, and they mate. It doesn’t take long. And once they are finished, the male runs away from the female as if he is frightened to death: he runs from the place where they have mated. He never looks back – literally. The rest of the year he lives in deep solitude. Mutual communication – the touching of two hearts – does not exist for them. So, that is the story of polar bears – or at least it is what my employer told me about them.”

    “How very strange”, Satsuki said.

    “Yes”, Nimit said, “it is strange.” His face was grave. “I remember asking my employer, ‘Then what do polar bears exist for?’ ‘Yes, exactly.’ he said with a big smile. ‘Then what do we exist for, Nimit?’ “

    "Jenny, I am in trouble
    Can't get these thoughts out of me.
    Jenny, I'm seeing double
    I know this changes everything...

    It takes a lot of pain to pick me up
    It takes a lot of rain in the cup.
    Baby you gave me bad ideas
    Baby you left me sad and high..."

    And they arranged their dreams
    In some other way.
    And slept standing!

    “A mind not to be changed by place or time.
    The mind is its own place, and in itself
    Can make a heav'n of hell, a hell of heav'n.”

    ― John Milton, Paradise Lost
    “The moon had been observing the earth close-up longer than anyone...the moon remained silent; it told no stories. All it did was embrace the heavy past with a cool, measured detachment...No one could unlock the heart of the moon. Aomame...asked, “Have you gone to bed with someone in your arms lately?” 
The moon did not answer. 
“Do you have any friends?” she asked. 
The moon did not answer. 
“Don’t you get tired of always playing it cool?”
The moon did not answer.”

    I'm sure this has already been said but:

    It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.

    Default recommend

    Can anyone recommend a good book to sit on my nightstand untouched for 3 years collecting dust while I mindlessly stare into this stupid screen?

    Be but the shadow of heaven, and things therein
    Each to other like, more than on earth is thought?

    Default the brave memory of all

    … Like birds that get used to walking
    and become heavier and heavier, as if in free fall:
    the earth sucks out of their long claws
    the brave memory of all
    the great things that happen up high,
    and turns them almost into leaves that hold
    close to the ground …

    Rainer Maria Rilke, adapted from “Fragments of Lost Days”, in The Book of Images, translated by E. Snow
