And from this moment on, everyone else will be incidental...

I loved you.

Even now I may confess,
Some embers of my love their fire retain;

But do not let it cause you more distress,
I do not want to sadden you again.

Hopeless and tongue-tied,
yet I loved you dearly
With pangs the jealous and the timid know;
So tenderly I loved you, so sincerely,
I pray God grant another love you so.

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost

that their loss is no disaster,

Lose something every day.
Accept the fluster…

...Then practice losing farther, losing faster…

Elizabeth Bishop

break me shake me hate me

-- Spune-mi, W: cum isi exercita un om puterea asupra altui om?

W se gandi, apoi raspunse:
-- facandu-l sa sufere.

-- Exact! Facandu-l sa sufere. Ascultarea nu ajunge... Puterea consta in a-l umili si a-i provoca durere. Ai putere atunci cand rupi constiinta omului in bucati, iar bucatile le recompui in forme noi pe care tu insuti le hotarasti.
