"I’ve had so many knives stuck into me, when they hand me a flower I can’t quite make out what it is. It takes time."
"And there I sat, long long ago, waiting for the world to know me."
"I want to live without seeing myself."
Federico García Lorca, Song of the Barren Orange Tree
"The madness of depression is, generally speaking, the antithesis of violence. It is a storm indeed, but a storm of murk. Soon evident are the slowed-down responses, near paralysis, psychic energy throttled back close to zero. Ultimately, the body is affected and feels sapped, drained."
"I do not speak as I think, I do not think as I should, and so it all goes on in helpless darkness."
"Ne pouvant rien partager avec personne, je me suis désintéressé de tout."
