The boredom I feel when speaking to the ambitious owes to the fact that they are more interested in comparing than connecting. Even so, I am grateful to them for inspiring in me the ambition to remain ambitionless.
Do not delay in exposing your vulnerabilities. You may end up with fewer friends but the remaining ones will likely be true.
I bask in the gentle silence that allow us to be together and apart.
It is at times lonely and at others lovely to be an important Someone to some while being nobody’s One.
I have known the love of friendship more intimately than any other. And while I may be biased by my experiences I believe it to be the highest and purest form of love. For it is not determined or bound by duty, blood, biological instinct or legal contracts. It is a choice and, as such, allows us to keep our wings.
Speak to a loved one as if for the first time and you may discover that you are meeting them for the first time.
I wish to fall in love so that I may take a vacation from seeing.
Distance is often the closest thing.
It is frightening to be in the company of unhappy people who, through sheer unawareness, believe they are happy. They will poke you with the thorn and insist they handed you the bud.
Better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
