These two were really memorable for me:
1. “He's given me that silver pocket watch and I'd carried it everywhere. I'd loved it--until things got worse and its ticking sounded more like dark footsteps coming up behind me. I loved the watch until I started hating time. And how it ran out.”
2. “Across far, dark miles a friend can still hold your hand and be there with you.”
And finally, here's one of Mark's haikus:
“All the world is dark.
But together we build light;
Shared, it keeps us warm.”
