"Flow with whatever may happen, and let your mind be free: Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate."
"There’s time we can waste
and there’s time we must treasure,
please have both with me."
"Here is the truth: It is hard to be in love
with someone who is in love with someone else.
I don’t know how to turn that into poetry."
"When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits - anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving."
"The Universe sends us exactly what we are ready for at the exact time we need it in our lives."
"A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe."
"I understood all that in my head, but I still didn’t believe it in my heart."
"I wish somebody had told me that loving people, knowing how to love those people, and those people loving you back were three entirely different things."
"I wish people could just say how they feel like ‘Hey I really don’t like when you do that to me’ or ‘Hey I’m in love with you’ or ‘Hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time’ without sounding desperate. Why can’t everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble?"
"Give yourself permission to immediately walk away from anything that gives you bad vibes. There is no need to explain or make sense of it. Just trust what you feel."
"The people who are meant to be in your life will always gravitate back towards you, no matter how far they wander."
"But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin."
"I think people spend too much time staring into screens and not enough time drinking wine, tongue kissing, and dancing under the moon."
