Quote of the Day

John Edgar Wideman, Philadelphia Fire

“Sometimes I’ve thought of myself, of you, of ourselves, as walled cities, each of us a fortress, a citadel, pinpoints of something that is the inverse of light, all of us in our profusion spread like a map of stars, each of us fixed in our place on a canvas immense beyond knowing; except that we know the immensity must be there to frame our loneliness, to separate us as far as we are separate, each from each, in the darkness.”
