The Quotes Themselves

-- ??? ("The Only Option", Megan Derr)

Chociaż kiedyś Cornel opowiadał mi taką historię o chłopaku, któremu przytrafiały się różne, szalone przygody. Okazało się, że leżał w śpiączce i to wszystko mu się śniło. Opowieść miała szczęśliwe zakończenie, bo w końcu się obudził, ale zawsze budziło to we mnie wątpliwości. No bo przecież w swoich snach przeżył tak dużo. Wiódł cudowne, bohaterskie życie i miał wielu przyjaciół. Na jego miejscu, chyba nie byłbym zadowolony z powrotu do rzeczywistości.

-- ??? ("Krąg", Silencio)

This won't stop until I die.
But when I die, I want it to hurt.
When my friends leave, when I have to let go, when this entire town is wiped off the map, I want it to hurt. Bad.
I want to lose. I want to get beaten up. I want to hold on until I'm thrown off and everything ends.
And you know what?
Until that happens, I want to hope again. And I want it to hurt. Because that means it meant something.
It means I am something, at least... pretty amazing to be something, at least...

-- Mae Borowski ("Night in the Woods", Infinite Fall)

It feels so long
But I report
Life is too short.
