As the souls of the dead fill the space of my eyes and my boat listed over and tried to capsize, I'm this far from drowning, this far from the sea, I remember the living do they think of me? When my bones in the ocean forever will be" - Bones in the ocean by The Longest Johns.

"You're not dying, you know. When mom and dad died, I thought I was going to die too. I was sure of it. But then I thought what if I was already dead? But nobody knew and I was walking around dead. But everybody could see and hear me. That was dreadful. It only felt like dying because actually, I was still alive. You have to be to feel that way. I wasn't dead. I was just really, really sad. But then I learned a secret. I didn't even need to be sad anymore." | "What secret?" | "Dead doesn't mean gone."

Sorria à vida ou à morte? "Vamos então embora" disse Muatiânvua. "És tu que dizes para irmos embora?", gritou o Comissário, "Tu, de quem ele gostava tanto? Tu, Muatiânvua? Ninguém vai embora. Vamos enterrá-lo aqui". "É loucura", disse Ekuikui "Não temos pás nem enxadas. Os obuses caem perto. Vamos levá-lo para outro sítio". "Cavemos com os punhais, com as mãos, com o que quiserem.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling, / by the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore, / "Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no craven, / ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore / tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!" / Quoth the Raven "Nevermore". - The Raven, Edgar Allan Poe.

Maria José and Paulina, La Casa de Las Flores.

No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone. - Shirley Jackson.
