“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us.”
Pema Chödrön

Franz Kafka
“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.”

Anne Lamott
“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
Anne Lamott

Oscar Wilde
“Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
Oscar Wilde

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
