Maybe a cliche but there’s something beautiful in the prose

 

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

-Roy Batty, 'Blade Runner

I've said it before but one of my favourite pieces of prose, and certainly my favourite opening paragraph, has to be from Shirley Jackson's majestic The Haunting of Hill House (for my money the best 'haunted house' story ever written). Gives me goosebumps every time I read it :notworthy:

 

“No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.”

It was a typo, I'm cringing now I've looked at it again.

@Boojum picked up on it too. I'm sorry.

 

'Shaved Women, collaborators' 

Penny Rimbaud's book 'Shibboleth' is an interesting read.

'Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity' source unknown, scrawled on my teenage bedroom wall by an old mate, now missing presumed dead.
