I hope you heal from the things you don't talk about. I hope you heal from the things no one ever apologized for. I hope you heal from the things no one knows you went through. I hope you heal from the things you cry about at night. I hope you heal from the things and people that shattered your confidence. I hope you heal from the things you manage to hide so well. I hope you heal from the things which hurts you in anyway either emotionally, mentally or physically. I hope you heal both physically and mentally.

there should be a thing called lustful academia. romantic academia but more passionate. pomegranate juice dripping down your hands as you open the ripe fruit of love; stains left on the annotated book you’re currently reading. lady dakota warren level of passion and lust for life, knowledge, art, and literature, but even more intense. pure bacchanalia.

Quote
Eros is an issue of boundaries. He exists because certain boundaries do. In the interval between reach and grasp, between glance and counterglance, between "I love you" and "I love you too," the absent presence of desire comes alive. But the boundaries of time and glance and I love you are only aftershocks of the main, inevitable boundary that creates Eros: the boundary of flesh and self between you and me. And it is only, suddenly, at the moment when I would dissolve that boundary, I realize I never can.
Anne Carson, Eros the Bittersweet

@ Christian mutuals
Does it not feel like vampirism in Dracula is more or less a metaphor for demon possession? Given that Dracula himself is kind of a Satanic archetype. And also the whole thing feels to me like some sort of spiritual battle.
Overall to me this feels like a novel with heavy Christian themes (and it helps that the characters themselves believe in and pray to God etc). How I interpreted it, the main theme of the novel is how people ignore spiritual evil as a "silly superstition" in our increasingly secular world and then fall right into its trap.
