The Curse Us

-----------------------------------------------
For we are the citizens of Tanis, silted city of the silted Nile.  No barges come to carry away the great carvings we have made.
----------------------------------------------- 
You are always far from home. Your wellbeing rests always in the hands of your host.
-----------------------------------------------
To receive no reply from the expected source. To receive no reply at all. 
-----------------------------------------------
Your wound may be cleaned and dressed, but it will never heal. 
-----------------------------------------------
I search for the lost city only in arguments against its existence.
-----------------------------------------------
Nothing that is written shall ever come to pass. 
-----------------------------------------------
You arrived at the bend in the river. Nothing marked it as the end of your outward journey. Still, you turned back.
-----------------------------------------------
Cherry blossom, both fleeting and eternal. But with each passing year, more fleeting and less eternal.
-----------------------------------------------
Curse us if what was said could not be heard. Bless them if what was given could not be kept.
-----------------------------------------------
The Law has changed! What was done must now be undone. And what was undone must now be done.
-----------------------------------------------
As it is reeled in, the fish comforts itself with the fiction of the lure. It was never attracted by the hook.
-----------------------------------------------
I wanted to attack, but all the counters were glued to the board.
-----------------------------------------------
I don't gamble because I think I am going to win, I gamble because I want to impose an intelligible pattern on my losses.
