Stopping a war; that is, stopping actual military combat, is not stopping a war in all its factors. During continuous hard strain a human mind can hold up; and it is truly amazing how much it can stand. Day by day, with that war-strain of worry pulling it down, it staunchly holds aloof, as a mighty oak in facing a storm. But it has a limit!! With too much too long strain, it will snap; just as that mighty oak will fall, in a long fight.
Ernest Vincent Wright

When the starry sky, a vista of open seas, or a stained-glass window shedding purple beams fascinate me, there is a cluster of meaning, of colors, of words, of caresses, there are light touches, scents, sighs, cadences that arise, shroud me, carry me away, and sweep me beyond the things I see, hear, or think, The "sublime" object dissolves in the raptures of a bottomless memory. It is such a memory, which, from stopping point to stopping point, remembrance to remembrance, love to love, transfers that object to the refulgent point of the dazzlement in which I stray in order to be.

Remy shot to her feet, eyes blazing. Her hands were fisted at her sides. 'Don't be stupid, Creed.' 'What did you say?' I asked slowly. 'Don't. Be. Stupid.' I opened my mouth, closed it. 'Why do you even care?' I finally asked. Remy's eyes shifted away from mine. She was hiding something. 'You're giving up.' 'No.' I shook my head. 'Giving up would be giving in to the darkness completely. I haven't quite taken that step yet.' 'What's stopping you?' 'What?' 'If you don't care and you want it to be over, what's stopping you from letting the evil inside of you destroy you?' You. 'You need to leave, ' I told her. 'I can't.' A low rumble sounded deep in my chest. 'Are you growling at me?' 'Are you scared?' 'No.' 'You should be, ' I stated, moving for her.
