In The Words of Sylvia Plath

“I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My love’s not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I’ll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time…”

Sylvia Plath

That's a really cool quote. I'd like to be a homeless person.

That was really good.
I miss you.

Is that the author of Battlestar Galatica? Who knew a book about an alien race sending robots to kill off all humans would have such profound reflection?

I think Gwyneth Paltrow played her in a movie once. Anyway, I like this quote.

i LOVE this part "I have to live my life, and it is the only one I’ll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time…"
