You only rent your body from the soil. Stop pretending like you can own anything at all.
Why on earth is everyone so desperate to be unique?
In a lot of ways you can tell the men from the boys, but those ways are subtle.
Everyone would jump were they to see their own shadow, that’s the god’s honest truth.
Within everything else we are lonely, far too frightened by our own reflections to ever feel a true feeling.
And I could be a ghost in the way that I am seen by you, that is to say, the way you perceive everything.
I know like I know anything that within my ribcage I feel something and I can spend the rest of my time seeing what it is.

this was good, i thought the ''you only rent your body from the soil'' part was a bit funny, dark humor i guess.
