Meanwhile in my head, I'm undergoing open-heart surgery - Anne Sexton
"In short, tell me you will go on loving me, no matter how I behave go on loving me at any price, there is no disgrace I would not be prepared to bear—but where is this leading me?"
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"I don’t have the passion anymore, and so remember, it’s better to burn out than to fade away."
- Kurt Cobain, from his suicide note
"I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves."
- Hermann Hesse, from Demian
"Yes, I miss you, I miss you."
- Virginia Woolf, from a letter to Vita Sackville-West 
"If after I read a poem the world looks like that poem for 24 hours or so I’m sure it’s a good one—and the same goes for paintings."
- Elizabeth Bishop
"I am writing to you because I am wholly filled with you and must in some way let it be known to the outside world."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"You will not leave me, you have said so many times, but I want to be very close to you in every respect; don’t withhold from me any part of you, not even your complaints. Stay with me entirely, dearest, stay for me as you are; I would not wish a single hair on your head to turn any way other than it does. Don’t try to be gay if you are not. For cheerfulness, resolutions are not enough, cheerful circumstances are needed as well. I won’t find you any more attractive if you look better, I shall only find you as attractive as I do now. The nearness I feel to you is too great for any change of moods, of appearance, to have any effect on my relationship with you. I will only be unhappy when you are unhappy, and out of love for you as much as out of self-interest I will attempt to remove the unhappiness."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"Do you lose your temper easily? I don’t on the whole, but when I do, I really feel closer to God than at other times. When the blood begins to boil all at once, from head to foot, fists twitching in one’s pockets, when everything in one detaches itself from all self-control, and this very powerlessness to control oneself reveals itself—in another, indeed the true sense—as power, then one realizes that anger should be avoided only in its lowest beginnings."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"There is something of the lunatic asylum in my life. Innocent, and certainly guilty as well, I am locked up, not in a cell, but in this town […]"
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"…there won’t be any more writing, only to this girl to whom one always wants to write, from whom one always wants to hear, with whom one always longs to be, in whom one longs to lose oneself."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"No, I didn’t imagine my being alone with you the way you do. If I want the impossible, I want it in its entirety. Entirely alone, dearest, I wanted us to be entirely alone on this earth, entirely alone under the sky, and to lead my life, my life that is yours, without distraction and with complete concentration, in you."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
