Prose Prunings

“We all repeat what we hear, and wonder where the echo begins. Resonance, after all, is the most personal kind of truth, which oscillates between our own present and past.”
— Patrick Monahan

“I am learning to see. I don’t know why it is, but everything enters me more deeply and doesn’t stop where it once used to. I have an interior that I never knew of. Everything passes into it now. I don’t know what happens there.”

—   Rainer Maria Rilke, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge
