“There was an ocean above us, held in by a thin sac that might rupture and let down a flood at any second.” ― Stephen King, Different Seasons

 

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.”
― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

“I was born at the dead end of a dirt road that had no name and no number. You can go anywhere from nowhere.” Robert Schuller

“Great artists make the roads; good teachers and good companions can point them out. But there ain’t no free rides, baby. No hitchhiking. And if you want to strike out in any new direction — you go alone. With a machete in your hand and the fear of God in your heart.”

Ursula K. Le Guin, The Language of the Night: Essays on Fantasy and Science Fiction
