I am trying to understand the concept of a conformity-conscious freedom

This year taught me that my loneliness has more to do with myself than anyone else. The loneliest I will ever be is when I do not have the strength to love myself.

Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook

If you are too much like myself, what shall I learn of you, or you of me?

I like the weather’s small, beneficent motions. They are not the sublime motions. Storm, cyclone, flood, ice and avalanche make news, and often have need of heroes. But they do not make poems.

Metaphors My Mother Never Taught Me →


On the days when your body feels like a broken hour glass

and all you want is to tip it over and let the remaining sand spill out,

think of how many good minutes you still have left.

Heartbreak is like rain: eventually it dries up and disappears through the cracks

of whatever pieces your heart…

Remember Kammo, man is forgiven every sin. But no trespass by a woman is ever tolerated.

Michelle Hodkin, The Evolution of Mara Dyer

I think you could fall in love with anyone if you saw the parts of them that no one else gets to see. Like if you followed them around invisibly for a day and you saw them crying in their bed at night or singing to themselves as they make a sandwich or even just walking along the street and even if they were really weird and had no friends at school, I think after seeing them at their most vulnerable you wouldn’t be able to help falling in love with them.
