Keri Hulme

But hands are sacred things. Touch is personal, fingers of love, feelers of blind eyes, tongues of those who cannot talkā€¦More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am not a person to say the words out loud
I think them strongly, or let them hunger from the page:
know it from there, from my silence, from somewhere other
than my tongue
the quiet love
the silent rage.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have watched the river and the sea for a lifetime. I have seen rivers rob soil from the roots of trees until the giants came foundering down. I have watched shores slip and perish, the channels silt and change; what was beach become a swamp and a headland tumble into the sea. An island has eroded in silent pain since my boyhood, and reefs have become islands. Yet the old people used to say, People pass away, but not the land. It remains forever. Maybe that is so. The land changes. The land continues. The sea changes.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's the possibility that when you're dead you might still go on hurting that bothers me.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am exceedingly angry for no good reason.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Wars of small kingdoms and forgotten lands, what do chessmen dream of in the dark?More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am in limbo, and in limbo there are no races, no prizes, no changes, no chances. There are merely degrees of endurance, and endurance never was my strong point.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Why? is the boy's motto, why does, why is, why not? Food, weather, time, fires, sea and season, clothes and cars and people; it's all grist to the mill of why.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is a time, when passing through a light, that you walk in your own shadow.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am not dead yet! I can still call forth a piece of soul and set it down in color, fixed forever.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Through poverty, godhunger, the family debacle, I kept a sense of worth. I could limn and paint like no-one else in this human-wounded land: I was worth the while of living. Now my skill is dead. I should be.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The company you keep at death is, of all things, most dependent on chance.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have faced Death. I have been caught in the wild weed tangles of Her hair, seen the gleam of her jade eyes. I will go when it is time - no choice! - but now I want life.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The smarter you are, the more you know, the less reason you have to trust or love or confide.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You want to know about anybody? See what books they read, and how they've been read...More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A family can be the bane of one's existence. A family can also be most of the meaning of one's existence. I don't know whether my family is bane or meaning, but they have surely gone away and left a large hole in my heart.More Keri Hulme [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
