I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while

rabbit blog: EXIT STRATEGY
"[E]very second you spend in their presence, your self-esteem crumbles a little more.

"That's by design, by the way. They want you to feel weak because they can't stand the idea that you could grow strong and leave them and never look back."

"This is about survival, ok? You are not surviving right now. You're hurting yourself, by telling yourself that you're safer in an inherently unsafe situation. You need to say soothing things, avoid pissing the vampires off, all the while quietly getting the fuck out of there."

Letters of Note: I shall always be with you
"Go through the world with open eyes, and listen not only to your own pains and interests, but also to the pains, interests and longings of others. Don't ever think of anything as none of your business. No, everything must interest you, and you should reflect about everything, compare, compose individual phenomena."
