she was like the moon --
part of her was always hidden away.

mint follows:
  • an entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.
  • closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. in fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. that’s the kind of world we live in. keep your eyes wide open.
  • everyone wants to be the champagne, not the glass. everyone wants to be the flower, not the vase. but the world needs glasses and vases. these roles need to be filled.
  • holding anger is a poison. it eats you from inside. we think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. but hatred is a curved blade. and the harm we do, we do to ourselves.
  • i’d imagine the whole world was one big machine. machines never come with any extra parts, you know. they always come with the exact amount they need. so i figured if the entire world was one big machine… i couldn’t be an extra part. i had to be here for some reason. and that means you have to be here for some reason, too.
  • i’m a ghost. is this place without time a place for the departed?
  • if you want to kill yourself, kill what you don’t like. i had an old self that i killed. you can kill yourself too, but that doesn’t mean you got to stop living.
  • it's still not a happy life, but sometimes happiness consists of nothing more than finding the right balance of misery.
  • language disguises thought.
  • sometimes things don't go well. but i don't worry about it. because just like there's a right place for everything around me, there must be the right place for me somewhere in this world.
  • there are two kinds of people: those who keep you grounded and those who weigh you down.
  • things will change: you won’t feel this way forever.
  • two things define you. your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything.
  • what is it about fire? so calm and peaceful but… inside, all power and destruction. it’s hiding something. just like people do. sometimes you have to get close to find what’s inside. sometimes you have to get burned to see the truth.
  • when someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. but if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.
  • Y. that perfect letter. the wishbone, fork in the road, empty wineglass. the question we ask over and over.
  • you are not your past.
