The Lake Isle of Innisfree By William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, 
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made; 
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee, 
And live alone in the bee-loud glade. 
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, 
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; 
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, 
And evening full of the linnet’s wings. 

I will arise and go now, for always night and day 
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; 
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, 
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
❝ When you’re dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you’re dead? Nobody. ❞

— J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

❝ It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it’s called Life. ❞

— Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent

❝ I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions. ❞

— Augusten Burroughs, Magical Thinking: True Stories
