quote 2014-01-12 21:47
Some thoughts are like shadows, fortified by darkness, multiplying and dancing around, reappearing where they are not expected. Thoughts that never reach the stage when they can be called decisions, though they turn into them.

quote 2013-12-07 16:52
I was a tongue, a gazette. The bearer of "the truth of the whispers."
I knew of hollowed books, trunks with false bottoms, and the meanders of secret corridors. I knew how to open hidden drawers in your escritoire, how to unseal your letter and make you think no one had touched it. If I had been in your room, I left the hair around your lock the way you had tied it. If you trusted the silence of the night, I had overheard your secrets.
