“the words ‘my doctor said’ always seem so foreboding, make you feel like you’re choking on a cold stethoscope and tongue depressors. when you say ‘my doctor’ i don’t think of the friendly man with my grandfather’s middle name who would always ask my mother what she thought it was first. i think of his credentials and his white coat and how someday he’ll probably have to give me some very bad news.”
Flannery O’Connor (via misswallflower)
“And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—-nevermore!”
—The Raven, Edgar Allan Poe
