“You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame; How could you become new if you haven’t first become ashes?

almost all the rest.

Ready to help,
if it doesn’t take long:
forty-nine.

because they cannot be otherwise:
fourwell, maybe five.

Able to admire without envy:

Living in constant fear
of someone or something:
seventy-seven.

Capable of happiness:
twenty-some-odd at most.

Harmless alone,
turning savage in crowds:
more than half, for sure.

Cruel

Wise in hindsight:
not many more

ninety-nine.

Mortal:
one hundred out of one hundred
a figure that has never varied yet.”

— Wisława Szymborska (via wordsnquotes)

“It’s a most Distressing affliction to have a sentimental heart and a Skeptical mind.”

— Naguib Mahfouz, Sugar Street (via wordsnquotes)

“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode…The stars died so that you could be here today.”

— Lawrence M. Krauss (via wordsnquotes)

“If we don’t have each other, we go crazy with loneliness. When we do, we go crazy with togetherness.”

“Poetry can be dangerous, especially beautiful poetry, because it gives the illusion of having had the experience without actually going through it.”

Rumi (via wordsnquotes)

“If I knew words enough, I could write the longest love letter in the world and never get tired.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, Head and Shoulders (via wordsnquotes)

“No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention.
Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day.
This is all practice.”

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”

Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband

Happy Birthday!
