  • As for me, I used to be a bird with a gentle white womb, someone cut my throat just for laughs, I don’t know. As for me, I used to be a great albatross and whirled over the seas. Someone put an end to my journey, without any charity in the tone of it. But even stretched out on the ground I sing for you now my songs of love.

    Alda Merini (2016). “Love Lessons: Selected Poems of Alda Merini”, p.51, Princeton University Press

  • I don't like Paradise, as they probably don't have obsessions there.
