It sometimes strikes me, when I am in the swimming pool watching the great mute alternating agon of arms and bathing caps, how each person's swimming stroke has the style of that person. The way a hand flips down into water each time a swimmer performs, say, a stroke of front crawl gives you essential information about them — about the angle at which their soul is turned and how they use, are used by, life. Everything else that person does – cook dinner, kiss, write, sweep the floor, go mad – will contain the same little flip. There is something both vast and pitiful about this fact.
Anne Carson, “Water, Still”, in Answer Scars, as part of Roni Horn’s Wonderwater / Alice Offshore

Quote
Yes before now I have been a boy and a girl            and a bush and a bird and a languageless fish in the sea.               (Empedokles, fragment 117) His ego has lived through all the moments of mortal history, he says, and remembers them. Laying its soft paws on the grass. Dipping her shining hand in the water. Coming to the cave. Bristling its quills. Weeping at the strangeness of the place. Pounded through by desire. Squeezing out a dab of paint. Skimming the wave. Putting blood to his lips. Knocking the lantern against the turnstile. Kissing. Wailing. Robbing. Exhaling. Drawing a line in the sand. Remembers them all.
Anne Carson, “Pronouns Detain Me”, in Answer Scars, as part of Roni Horn’s Wonderwater / Alice Offshore

When Anne Carson said "I feel so lonely, like childhood again." and when Ryan O'Connell said "I don't want to have to be the one who mourns everything when everyone else has clearly forgotten. It's mortifying. It's mortifying to be the one who remembers." and when Gregory Orr said "Childhood dotted with bodies. Let them go, let them be ghosts. 'No,' I said, 'make them stay, make them stone.'"
