«That girl, dead and gone, her spirit trapped forever just inside town limits—she'd come from someplace, was going somewhere.

«It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.»

Heather R. Blair

«The Looking Glass- Wish it bares abides in us.»

«It is wrong to bear children out of need, wrong to use a child to alleviate loneliness, wrong to provide purpose in life by reproducing another copy of oneself. It is wrong also to seek immortality by spewing one's germ into the future as though sperm contains your consciousness!»
