"It's hard convincing yourself that where you are at the moment is your home, and it's not always where your heart is. Sometimes I win and sometimes not."
-- Jonathan Carroll
Sky Fall - Ullswater, The…
It wasn’t martyrdom or altruism or anything as lovely as all that. I would simply be doing what was right for the third or fourth time in my life, and that was good. I realized how naive and unrealistic people are to think you can be both right and happy. If it happens that way, you are truly one of the blessed. Right, however, should win if you have to choose.
Jonathan Carroll, Voice of Our Shadow

You cannot live when you are untouchable. Life is vulnerability.

Sometimes it feels like my heart is breaking loose because I want this to work so much. How do you love someone the right way?
Jonathan Carroll, The Marriage of Sticks

Someday, somewhere - anywhere, unfailingly, you’ll find yourself, and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life. 
- Pablo Neruda
(Jonathan Carroll)
It’s arrogant to think you know what’s right. Morality is only cowardice most of the time. We don’t avoid misbehaving because it’s not proper; what we’re really afraid of is how far down it looks to the bottom. It is far, and you may get killed when you hit. But sometimes you survive the jump, and down there the world is a million times better than where you’re living now.
Jonathan Carroll, The Marriage of Sticks
