someone like you

cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going
to get better.

It’s not.

-Dr Suess, The Lorax-

Even if
I’m dying,
until I actually die,
I am still living.

-Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air-

Have I gone mad?

I’m afraid so, 
but let me
tell you something,
the best people
usually are.

-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland-

That’s the thing
about pain.
It demands
to be felt.

-John Green, The Fault in Our Stars-

Why are you so cold?
Is it snowing in you?
Dissolve that
to become great.

The life’s little sorrows
you take too seriously.


you do things

from your soul,
You feel a river
moving in you,
a joy.


Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold. 

Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

-Robert Frost-

holds the key to
our aesthetic, intellectual,
cognitive and even
spiritual satisfaction.

-E.O. Wilson-

Kindness is
the language
the deaf
can hear

and the blind
can see.

-Mark Twain-
