If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.
Open yourself. Let the human person come forth.
Breathe in the air and the silence.
// Franz Kafka
The more I know of the world,
the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man
whom I can really love.
I require so much!
Sense and Sensibility // Jane Austen
I am still learning how to live & love.
I am still learning how to do both without inflicting pain on others.
I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”
I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.
// Maya Angelou
You’d be surprised how little I knew even up to yesterday.
// Jack Kerouac
Don’t let your luggage define your travels, each life unravels differently.
// Shane Koyczan
