"You can keep as quiet as you like, but one of these days somebody is going to find you."
"I used to keep a simple diary, but if I forgot for two or three days, I’d lose track of what happened on which day. Yesterday could have been the day before yesterday, or vice versa.

At the fact that I was part of such a life, a life that had swallowed me up so completely. As the fact that my footprints were being blown away before I ever had a chance to turn and look at them."
"At first there was nothing…then nothing turned itself inside-out and became something"
