“One. Do not promise when you’re happy.
Two. When you are angry, do not respond.
Three. Do not decide when you’re sad.”

“Men and women get wiser with each relationship. The first is always the hardest because most people bare their souls and go in with a no-holds-barred approach, but as we mature, we learn to guard our hearts. We also learn to avoid the pitfalls that we know will end a relationship. Through many fights and arguments, men have wised up to the fact that women employ an “If you’re not with me, you’re against me” attitude in their vulnerable and emotional states. Therefore, men sometimes hold their tongues until you’ve calmed down and are receptive to our objective advice. In fact, you should know this: the more we hold back, the more we actually care.”


“you are beautiful like demolition. just the thought of you draws my knuckles white. i don’t need a god. i have you and your beautiful mouth, your hands holding onto me, the nails leaving unfelt wounds, your hot breath on my neck. the taste of your saliva. the darkness is ours. The nights belong to us. everything we do is secret. nothing we do will ever be understood; we will be feared and kept well away from. it will be the stuff of legend, endless discussion and limitless inspiration for the brave of heart. it’s you and me in this room, on this floor. now you’re here and everything we touch explodes, bursts into bloom or burns to ash. history atomizes and negates itself with our every shared breath. i need you like life needs life. i want you bad like a natural disaster. you are all i see. you are the only one i want to know.”

“do stuff. be clenched, curious. not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. pay attention. it’s all about paying attention. attention is vitality. it connects you with others. it makes you eager. stay eager.”
- susan sontag

“when the time comes

and my body can no longer handle my mind,

let me go.

let my body finally reunite with the stars where it belongs,

and when our loved ones asked what happened to me,

remind them that some people spend their entire lives fighting with themselves.

remind them that not all wars make headlines.

"when did we see each other face-to-face? not until you saw into my cracks and i saw into yours. before that, we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade but never seeing inside. but once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. the light can get out."

“you want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘wow, isn’t [she] so terribly brave to love a [man] who is so obviously sad?’ you think i’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? i’ll swallow you whole.”
- warsan shire

'are you always a smartass?'

‘nope. sometimes i’m asleep.’
