But now we see through a glass darkly and, the truth, before it is revealed to all, face to face, we are in fragments (alas, how illegible) in the error of the world, so we must spell out its faithful signals even when they seem obscure to us and as if amalgamated with a will wholly bent on evil.
― Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose (via no-rhythm)
The heart is resilient, I mean literally. When a body is burned, the heart is the last organ to oxidize. While the rest of the body can catch flame like a polyester sheet on campfire, it takes hours to burn the heart to ash.
