    • I nabbed it from a part of ‘The Hellbound Heart’ that stuck out to me. I thought about posting it with more context, but also thought the one sentence stood well on its own. If you (or anyone else) is interested in the rest of it though…

      “The seasons long for each other, like men and women, in order that they may be cured of their excesses.

      Spring, if it lingers more than a week beyond its span, starts to hunger for summer to end the days of perpetual promise. Summer in its turn soon begins to sweat for something to quench its heat, and the mellowest of autumns will tire of gentility at last, and ache for a quick sharp frost to kill its fruitfulness.

      Even winter – the hardest season, the most implaccable – dreams, as February creeps on, of he flame that will presently melt it away. Everything tires with time, and starts to seek some opposition, to save it from itself.”
      ~Cliver Barker, The Hellbound Heart

      I like things that speak to that nature recurring changes 🙂 .
