“I cannot let you burn me up, nor can I resist you. No mere human can stand in a fire and not be consumed.”
“Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.”
“Home is in my hair, my lips, my arms, my thighs, my feet and my hands. I am my own home. And when I wake up crying in the morning, thinking of how lonely I am, I pinch my skin, tug at my hair, remind myself that I am alive. Remind myself to step outside and greet the morning. Remind myself that it’s all about forward motion. It’s all about change. It’s all about that elusive state.
“Just as soon as we notice that someone has to force himself to pay attention when dealing and talking with us, we have a valid demonstration that he does not love us or that he does not love us anymore.”
“No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn’t know it.”
