Favorite Quotes: Daniel Vilmure

Daniel VilmureHe was laughing a little softer and saying just my last name now, like when you say a word to yourself and wonder how it came to get that word sound, and the more you say it the more awkward and hysterical it gets, until pretty soon it isn’t even a word anymore, it’s just a sound; and you can’t bring yourself to remember what the sound stood for, or whether it stood for anything, really, and you feel your stomach tighten because nothing remains to distance you from the fear of what the word once meant.

-from Life in the Land of the Living, by Daniel Vilmure.
