My fanfiction -- and one nonfannish poem -- is in my Memories.

My friend, blood shaking my heart
The awful daring of a moment's surrender
Which an age of prudence can never retract
By this, and this only, we have existed
Which is not to be found in our obituaries
Or in memories draped by the beneficent spider
Or under seals broken by the lean solicitor
In our empty rooms
-- T.S. Eliot, The Wasteland

The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - that you'd thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it's as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.
-- Alan Bennett The History Boys

Art is our chief means of breaking bread with the dead.
-- W. H. Auden

"All the tragedies which we can imagine return in the end to the one and only tragedy: the passage of time...
-- Simone Weil
