Meanwhile in my head, I'm undergoing open-heart surgery - Anne Sexton
"You are mad, you have lost it at last!” –
“No, I love only you senselessly […]"
- Anna Akhmatova, from Escape
"…I have lived through worse times, and am still more or less alive, and if I am not going to write for myself, I shall have more time to write to you, to enjoy the nearness of you, this nearness which I have created by thinking, by writing, and by fighting with all the strength of my soul—but you, you will not be able to love me any more."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"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 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
"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
"I am here to be told everything, and if I am not here to be told everything, then I don’t deserve to be here at all."
-  Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"Before we met I also had these unpredictable moods; but then I seemed to lose all contact with the world; my life seemed disrupted; I rose to the surface and dived to the depths; now I have you, my dearest, I feel myself benevolently supported, and when I collapse I know it will not be forever, at least I think I know it, and can console you and myself with thoughts of better things to come."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"I can’t fail to worry. How could it be otherwise? When I suspect some uncertainty in you, then I too begin to feel uncertain, and become more useless than ever. I am too tired to explain this more clearly."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"Are you really well? Are there too many things about me that you object to? Did I matter to you especially today?"
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
"I mustn’t look at you too much, or I won’t be able to take my eyes off you at all."
- Franz Kafka, from Letters To Felice
