“What you remember saves you.”
― W. S. Merwin
day 1: favorite book/series; the fault in our stars by john green
“There will come a time, when all of us are dead, all of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed, or that our species ever did anything. There won’t be anyone left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten, and all of this, will have been for nothing. Maybe that time is coming soon or maybe it’s millions of years away but even if we survive the collapse of our sun we will not survive the collapse of the universe. There was time before organism’s experienced consciousness and there will be time after. If the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.”
Through the window at Five Leaves.
There are things I’d rather whisper and never quite say out loud.
