Phantom Limb Quotes

For most people in the [Jewish] Ghetto [of Warsaw] nature lived only in memory no parks, birds, or greenery existed in the Ghetto and they suffered the loss of nature like a phantom-limb pain, an amputation that scrambled the bodys rhythms, starved the senses, and made basic ideas about the world impossible for children to fathom.
— Diane Ackerman —

It would hurt someone normal," I whispered. "I'm not normal. It isn't like a phantom limb, something you had, used, needed and missed when it was gone. I never had that. I never had love. Devotion. Loyalty. You can't miss something you've never had.

Oedipa sat on the earth, ass getting cold, wondering whether, as Driblette had suggested that night from the shower, some version of herself hadn't vanished with him.

Someday she might replace whatever of her had gone away by some prosthetic device, a dress of a certain color, a phrase in a letter, another lover.

— Thomas Pynchon
