FAVORITE LINES FROM MAGGIE NELSON'S BLUETS
Not very original, but I want to share. Also I'm PMSing and anything involving sadness and love is MELTING me right now
- •It is easier, of course, to find dignity in one’s solitude. Loneliness is solitude with a problem.
- •Mostly I have felt myself becoming a servant of sadness. I am still looking for the beauty in that.
- •For to wish to forget how much you loved someone—and then, to actually forget—can feel, at times, like the slaughter of a beautiful bird who chose, by nothing short of grace, to make a habitat of your heart.
- •I want you to know, if you ever read this, there was a time when I would rather have had you by my side than any one of these words; I would rather have had you by my side than all the blue in the world.
