  • Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. — Rainer Maria Rilke
  • I am too alone in the world, and yet not alone enough/ to make every hour holy./ ...I want to describe myself/ like a painting that I studied/ closely for a long, long time,/ like a word I finally understood,/ like the pitcher of water I use every day,/ like the face of my mother,/ like a ship/ that carried me/ through the deadliest storm of all. — Rainer Maria Rilke

But that’s OK. I’m worth it.”
  • "you think you’ve survived so long that survival shouldn’t hurt anymore. You keep trying to turn your body bullet proof. You keep trying to turn your heart bomb shelter. You silly thing. You are soft and alive. You bruise and heal. Cherish it. It is what you are born to do."

  • One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.
