"To write about something or someone is to admit your own reality, to tell the truth you typically allow yourself to ignore. Writing, if done well, is always an exercise in vulnerability. Your ego has no place in it."
Moriah Pearson (via mooneyedandglowing)

"Cut a chrysalis open, and you will find a rotting caterpillar. What you will never find is that mythical creature, half caterpillar, half butterfly, a fit emblem of the human soul, for those whose cast of mind leads them to seek such emblems. No, the process of transformation consists almost entirely of decay."
Pat Barker, Regeneration (via commovente)
