infinite - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
“There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I'm likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful.”
She was left with this sense of dread as the hole in her heart seemed to open up into nothing. It was a cavern of no ends, the darkness stretching deep, far, and wide into the abyss. Tendrils of hope swallowed into the stifling black where space and time did not exist. The stars that attempted to light the way smouldered in the pitch dark until nothing was left. Eventually, when she tried to find an end or even a beginning, she too was swallowed into the infinite space that our human minds cannot begin to even fathom.
It did not end, it did not begin, but that did not stop it from being. It was there, everywhere, inside her and all around her, closing in on every side. She could not escape it. No one could, not ever.
Infinite times did I think of the same thing over and over and never gathered the courage to act upon thought. And 't was true when another did, I wondered at the audacity as if it was an alien thing.
Infinity is a most loved word by me. It always seems to be screaming the words "forever", "always" and "eternal". And those words in turn give me a sense of being loved. Whenever someone would say "We'll be friends forever" or "I'll love you always" it makes me think of all our little infinities (as John Green calls them) together. And so with everything I say I mostly add "times infinity", for example: "Love you times infinity", "<3 Times infinity", "xox times infinity". And yes, words are powerful, though 'tis said that if used too frequently they lose potency but I disagree, I believe they need to be said to be felt for when they are said much they become a part of you. They describe you. They become your identity and the word infinity is in many ways mine.
