3 Days, 3 Quotes – Day 2

Second day of the doing this tag! Brittany tagged me in it, so here we go! I’m still going to try to do spookier quotes.


  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day.

I am uncontained.
There is no place where I am not.
I am the circle and a circle is perfect.
I am the primordial egg at the moment the chrysalis breaks.
I am the amber eye looking at you and I am you looking back at me.
I am das Ungeheuer. Turn around.
I am salvation. I am contagion. I am perfection.
Like the beast its skin, I have sloughed off the human coil. There is no limit to me and so there is no you.
This is the secret I keep:
I am das Ungeheuer.
Turn around.

– Rick Yancey, The Final Descent

The Final Descent (The Monstrumologist, #4)

If you haven’t read this series, the quote doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. But, I think it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s so poetic and so terrifying, all at the same time.

Again, not going to tag anyone! Consider yourself tagged if you want to do this.
