“Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.”
"It is not earthly rank, nor birth, nor nationality, nor religious privilege, which proves that we are members of the family of God; it is love, a love that embraces all humanity."
"I need a lover that feels like warm coffee sips; alive, energizing and often pressed to my lips."
"I don’t broadcast every high & I don’t hide every low. I’m trying to live. I’m not trying to convince the world I have life. "
"Someday, someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it."
“And you became like the coffee, in the deliciousness, and the bitterness and the addiction.”
“I am drawn to you for the same reason insects are drawn to burning light; we are both compelled to jump into beautiful things, even if they have the potential to set us on fire.”
“Home is in my hair, my lips, my arms, my thighs, my feet and my hands. I am my own home. And when I wake up crying in the morning, thinking of how lonely I am, I pinch my skin, tug at my hair, remind myself that I am alive. Remind myself to step outside and greet the morning. Remind myself that it’s all about forward motion. It’s all about change. It’s all about that elusive state.
"I keep filling my hands with hips and skin and hair and none of them belong to you. Dear god, I miss you like empty walls and quiet car rides; everything feels wrong. You can’t come back and I can’t stop calling other men by your name."
“Happiness is dependent on self-discipline. We are the biggest obstacles to our own happiness. It is much easier to do battle with society and with others than to fight our own nature.”
"You couldn’t relive your life, skipping the awful parts, without losing what made it worthwhile. You had to accept it as a whole—like the world, or the person you loved."
“Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant filled with odd little waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don’t always like.”
“I’ve always wanted to be a cat. Warm and domesticated when you want to be, wild when you don’t.”
"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone."
