Now I am going back
  And I have ripped my hand
    From your hand as I said I would
      And I have made it this far
        as I said I would
          and I am on the top deck now
            holding my wallet, my cigarettes
              and my car keys
                at 2 o'clock on a Tuesday
                  in August of 1960.
      - Anne Sexton,
        Letter Written on a Ferry While Crossing Long Island Sound

The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted, uncared for and deserted by everybody.
      - Mother Teresa, in The Observer
