“Caddy got the box and set it on the floor and opened it. It was full of stars. When I was still, they were still. When I moved, they glinted and sparkled. I hushed”. –The Sound & The Fury, by William Faulkner
“The box of stars is the perfect metaphor for Caddy. Bright and burning. But she is closed off in a dark claustrophobic place, yet she is lighting everyone up around her”.-Parenthood
I really love this. I can't really explain why.
I guess, in a certain way, I'd like to have a box of stars too.
