"Dear Mother
I have left my troubles in a corner.  Can you run my bathwater?  If so, please come upstairs.
Sincerely, Hilary Bergen."

"Cut a chrysalis open, and you will find a rotting caterpillar.  What you will never find is that mythical half creature, half caterpillar, half butterfly, a fit emblem of the human soul for those whose cast of mind leads them to seek such emblems.  No, the process of transformation consists almost entirely of loss."  -Pat Barker
