"This is the very reason that some lives end seemingly early and by their own hands because Mother Nature doesn't understand that a personage can out-age a body. It is the reason that someone unwell can look so very vibrant on the outside, giving no indication that death lurks around the corner. Souls saturated in sickness, negativity, and ill-thoughts cannot weather the years well."

"She only knew she couldn't risk shutting off the car, having her girls broil in the heat, like a distracted mother at a shopping mall in the newspaper only a week ago." "They were at peace, protected from the vicious heat with the car running, the cool air circulating." "Dropping to her knees, Claire flattened one hand on the greasy floor like a kickstand. She couldn't pass out."
“I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.” - Rainer Maria Rilke
