Natasha Head is now a fan of Goodreads Author Natasha Head
“That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.”

“To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.”
Aaron Copland

“I'll be writing as long as I can hold a pen in my curled, crimped arthritic hands and then I'll dictate it, if it comes to that. They'll have to pry my pen out of my cold, dead fingers - and even then, I'll fight 'em for it. Guaranteed.”

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Helen Schucman

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
