"It’s an awful truth that suffering can deepen us, give a greater lustre to our colours, a richer resonance to our words. That is, if it doesn’t destroy us, if it doesn’t burn away the optimism and the spirit, the capacity for visions, and the respect for simple yet indispensable things."The Queen of the Damned

A thrall although you count me free
I, most in mirth, most pensive-sad;
I smile to shade my bitter spite
