Ursula K. Le Guin

I think that when I die

I think that when I die, I can breathe back the breath that made me live. I can give back to the world all that I didn't do. All that I might have been and couldn't be. All the choices I didn't make. All the things I lost and spent and wasted. I can give them back to the world. To the lives that haven't been lived yet. That will be my gift back to the world that gave me the life I did live, the love I loved, the breath I breathed

~ from THE OTHER WIND by Ursula K. Le Guin

Only in silence the word

Only in silence the word,
only in dark the light,
only in dying life.

~ Ursula Le Guin
