It isn’t possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.
- E.M. Forster

Self love, self respect, self worth. There is a reason they all start with “self”. You cannot find them in anyone else.

I had a strange dream last night: I was looking up at the sky, and it was very, very light, and soft; and high, high above me it seemed to be slowly boiling, like light that had materialized, like the fibres of a sunlit fabric, like silken, living stitches in a piece of Japanese embroidery. And those tiny fibres, light-bearing, living threads, seemed to be moving and floating and becoming like...

"I want to find peace but I’m not certain where to look. I feel like my heart is all full of wildfires burning burning burning, devouring all the good things like an open mouth. But I feel more like an open wound and I try to hold onto all the good things that I can, with my hands that could be prettier. Hydrangeas and chamomile tea with milk and saying ‘I love you’ too often and sweaters that...

„I am obsessed at nights with the idea of my own worthlessness, and if it were only to turn a light on to save my life I think I would not do it. These are the last footprints of a headache I suppose. Do you ever feel that? - like an old weed in a stream. What do you feel, lying in bed?“ - Virginia Woolf

"I wasn’t raised by a Beyonce or seen souls like Maya Angelou during my years of growing up. My figure wasn’t built to stop street lights or the hood local guys on every corner stop. I wasnt build to be strong like Martin Luther King “I have a Dream” speech or stand tall like Rosa Parks fight to stand straight legged and firm on that bus. I wasn’t build to sing at the Grammy awards or two step...

"Solidarity is not a matter of altruism. Solidarity comes from the inability to tolerate the affront to our own integrity of passive or active collaboration in the oppression of others, and from the deep recognition that, like it or not, our liberation is bound up with that of every other being on the planet, and that politically, spiritually, in our heart of hearts we know anything else is...

"I'll leave you alone forever now. I'll leave you like a comet leaves the outer space to meet the earth and never go back. But I will be thinking about you everyday, and I'll miss everything we never had. Everything that my brain created while you were somewhere else, thinking about the prettier things. Thinking about the happier, less blue things."
- Daulina Ismaili

“I feel myself shutting down, closing off, like I should tell people, "No, we don't use this heart anymore. It's too fragile.”

"It seems so foolish to me to wish to be right for the price of love and not to be able to communicate what I hold most valuable in order not to destroy the sympathetic feeling."

"I want love to be simple. I want to trust without thinking. I want to be generous with my affection and patience and love unconditionally. It is easier to love a person with their flaws than to weed through them. I want to love the whole person, not parts; and this is how I want to be loved."
- Jewel Kilcher

"I had asked him many times why he stayed, and he always said the same thing: ‘Because I love you, and I wanted to, and I knew you were in there.’ No matter how damaged I had been, he had loved me enough to still see me somewhere inside."

Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard: [ Link ]

"I spent the day wondering why
Why can't we work it out, why can't we work it out
Remember the light of dawn, on our faces
I was giving in to you, what's most precious to me
I want it all
I want it all again, again
I don't wanna believe you no more, nor
Any words you say, cause it's only bull*** bull*** anyway
I gave up

"You seem to have this strange image of me as a lost child, like I’ve just been thrown on the side of the road like garbage, or roadkill, but kids like me? We’re not lost. We may be the only ones who never are. We always know exactly where we are and where we can go. And where we can’t."
— Dot Hutchison
