"The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the thing you get ashamed of, because words diminish them-words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever you secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the seret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear." Stephen King-"The Body"
"Even if I'd known the right thing to say, I probably couldn't have said it. Speech destroys the functions of love, I think...Love has teeth; they bite; the wounds never close. No word, no combination of words, can close those lovebites. It's the other way around, that's the joke. If those wounds dry up, the words die with them. Take it from me. I've made my life from the words, and I know that is so." Stephen King-"The Body"
