Poetics

 

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things or make them unimportant.
⎯ The Eleventh Doctor


People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.
⎯ The Tenth Doctor


“My lover asks me:
“What is the difference between me and the sky?”
The difference, my love,
Is that when you laugh,
I forget about the sky.”
⎯ Nizar Qabbani, My Lover Asks Me


“I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams.”
⎯ The Eleventh Doctor


“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.”

⎯ Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
