José N. Harris
“There is beauty in truth, even if it's painful. Those who lie, twist life so that it looks tasty to the lazy, brilliant to the ignorant, and powerful to the weak. But lies only strengthen our defects. They don't teach anything, help anything, fix anything or cure anything. Nor do they develop one's character, one's mind, one's heart or one's soul.”
José N. Harris

“For my part, I prefer my heart to be broken. It is so lovely, dawn-kaleidoscopic within the crack.”
