From the depths I called to you
Doris Lessing: Grief like a weight of cold pain

Oscar Wilde: Suffering is one very long moment


Suffering is one very long moment. We cannot divide it by seasons. We can only record its moods, and chronicle their return. With us time itself does not progress. It revolves. It seems to circle round one centre of pain.... For us there is only one season, the season of sorrow.

    --Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), beginning of De Profundis
