    • don't be afraid to suffer - take your heaviness / and give it back to the earth's own weight; / the mountanins are heavy, the oceans are heavy. (rainer maria rilke)
    • i'm not really here i'm only the shape of the emptiness that holds me. (cecilia vicuña)
    • they come and go and it wastes my heart away. (friedrich hölderlin)
    • do you love tragedies and everything that breaks the heart? (friedrich nietzsche, thus spoke zarathustra )
    • there are times when i cam convinced i am unfit for any human relationship. (franz kafka)
    • out of the ash / i rise with my red hair / and i eat men like air. (sylvia plath, lady lazarus )
    • don’t be afraid to suffer — take your heaviness / and give it back to the earth’s own weight; / the mountains are heavy, the oceans are heavy. (rainer maria rilke)
    • what, to the american slave, is your 4th of july? i answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. to him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy - a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. there is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the united states,at this very hour. (frederick douglas, the meaning of july fourth to the negro, 07/04/1852)
