"Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad."
"My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart."
"Erase from your vocabulary the word “someday.” Do not save things for “special occasions.” Take into account the fact that every day is special. Every day is a gift that we must appreciate and be thankful for. Wear your attractive clothes, wear your nice perfume, use your fine silverware and dishes, and drink from your expensive crystal glasses…just because. Live every day to the fullest and savor every minute of it."
It is raining today
in the mountains.
It is a warm green rain
in its pockets
for spring is here,
and does not dream
"There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one."
"Be careful, lest in casting out your demon you exorcise the best thing in you."
"No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness."
"He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."
"I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age. A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth."
"You are so good. So good, you’re always feeling so much. And sometimes it feels like you’re gonna bust wide open from all the feeling, don’t it? People like you are the best in the world, but you sure do suffer for it."
