"Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are."
"You cut up a thing that’s alive and beautiful to find out how it’s alive and why it’s beautiful, and before you know it, it’s neither of those things, and you’re standing there with blood on your face and tears in your sight and only the terrible ache of guilt to show for it."
"We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full."
