Oh the city bus is swimming past.

"I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity. But for now, at least I knew such people, and they needed me, just like comets need tails."
— John Green (Looking for Alaska)

"Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known." -Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

"Carol: We were gonna make a whole world like this. Now, everyone used to come here, but you know... you know what it feels like when all your teeth are falling out really slowly and you don't realize and then you notice that, well, they're really far apart. And then one day... you don't have any teeth anymore.
Max: Yeah.
Carol: Well it was like that." -Where The Wild Things Are

I think this is what being suicidal often looks like. It’s not a passionate wish to die, it’s just giving up. No longer caring about life, about taking care of yourself, about whether you live or die. It was hard for me to sit in front of my counsellor like this - I’m usually such a people pleaser, that I want to look like I’m putting in a big effort. But I just didn’t have the will any more.

I DO NOT HAVE AN EATING DISORDER - Page 148
I think this is something that a lot of people with depression have experienced. It feels so limiting to have no energy whatsoever for performing even the most basic tasks. I’m usually a very tidy person, so letting my house go - not picking up after myself, doing the dishes, putting away clothes, doing laundry, taking out the rubbish - felt like a real low point for me. I was too embarrassed to have anyone over, but that didn’t matter, because I was hiding away from company anyway. If I needed to see people I would use it as an excuse to leave the house. I was lucky that no one really got any insight into my messiness, so I didn’t feel judged.

I found this copy of Thoreau’s Walden buried in the park.  I opened it and saw these roots growing between the pages. I don’t know whether to frame it or put it back in the ground.

Laurie Halse Anderson, The Impossible Knife of Memory

How could the Palestinians be “genuine partners” in peace talks when they have no country? But how could they have a country when it was taken from them? The Palestinians were never given any choice other than unconditional surrender. All they were offered was death. In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the actions of the Israelis are considered legitimate retaliation (even if their attacks do seem disproportionate), whereas the actions of the Palestinians are without fail treated as terrorist crimes. And the death of a Palestinian has neither the same interest nor the same impact as the death of an Israeli.
….
Today Israel is conducting an experiment. It has invented a model of repression that, once adapted, will profit other countries. There is great continuity in Israeli politics. Israel believes that the U.N. resolutions verbally condemning Israel in fact put it in the right. Israel has transformed the invitation to leave the occupied territories into the right to establish colonies there. It thinks sending an international peace-keeping force into Southern Lebanon is an excellent idea… provided that this force, in the place of Israeli forces, transforms the region into a police zone, a desert of security. This conflict is a curious kind of blackmail, from which the whole world will never escape unless we lobby for the Palestinians to be recognized for what they are: “genuine partners” in peace talks. They are indeed at war, in a war they did not choose.
