That hurt we embrace becomes joy. Call it to your arms where it can change.
I don’t regret how much I love, and I avoid those who repent their passion.

How will you know the difficulties of being human, if you’re always flying off to blue perfection?
If all you can do is crawl, start crawling.
Let yourself become living poetry.
There is a fountain inside you. Don’t walk around with an empty bucket.
