from "The Awakening" (2011)

DARKNESS
The dark used to bother me. Later, of course, it came to mean safety, no sniper fire, or shells, but as a lad I'd huddle into my bed wanting to see what was there but too frightened to open my eyes.  It's never darker than when we close our eyes and yet we keep them shut.  Why is that?  - 'Robert'
(GHOST-LIKE) EXISTENCE
A life haunted isn't a life at all. We may as well be ghosts ourselves. - 'Maud'


MEMORIES
... all memories are a hoax of some sort. - 'Robert'

MOTHERHOOD AND TRAGEDY
I never asked anything of the world.  And it's a perfect hell on earth to give a woman children to love and to rob her of them. - 'Maud'
