quote it
"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset."
- Francis de Sales
"To be desired is perhaps the closest anybody in this life can reach to feeling immortal."
- John Berger
"Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman."
- John Berger
"Suddenly I realized that I wanted everything to be as it was when I was younger. When you’re young enough, you don’t know that you live in a cheap lousy apartment. A cracked chair is nothing other than a chair. A dandelion growing out of a crack in the sidewalk outside your front door is a garden. You could believe that a song your parent was singing in the evening was the most tragic opera in the world. It never occurs to you when you are very young to need something other than what your parents have to offer you."
- Heather O’Neill, Lullabies for Little Criminals
"I want to be beautiful, pure and real. I want to be stripped down to my weakest self, to my bare soul; no cover ups, just the truth, and I don’t need to be loved, I just want to be accepted. In my rawest form. In my very own truth. Maybe I want to be loved and to heal. They say some need time to heal… But I think I just want to be loved to heal. And I know it will take every ounce of courage to let that happen. Because we all put up walls, dress up our souls, and create something that doesn’t really exist. It’s so much easier that way. But I accept not being perfect… And I hope with all my heart, that I will be breathtaking… A dream… So I am ready to undress my soul… And let you in, for the last time."
- D.H.G
"The more one judges, the less one loves."
- Honoré de Balzac
"One day you fall for this boy. And he touches you with his fingers. And he burns holes in your skin with his mouth. And it hurts when you look at him. And it hurts when you don’t. And it feels like someone’s cut you open with a jagged piece of glass."
- Maureen Medved, The Tracey Fragments
"Every great loss demands that we choose life again. We need to grieve in order to do this. The pain we have not grieved over will always stand between us and life. When we don’t grieve, a part of us becomes caught in the past…"
- Rachel Naomi Remen
"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention… A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words."
- Rachel Naomi Remen
"You’ll walk a city street that your feet have never touched before and you’ll be terrified of getting lost and that feeling is what’ll help you find the way home."
- Azra Tabassum
