A Second Chance by Nicole Ireland
“How am I going to tell the kids? How do I tell the man that I love, the man that I swore I’d grow old with that we won’t have that happy ending that he and I have worked so hard for? How do I say goodbye to all of you? How do I let go?”
Nicole Ireland
“Every single day
I find it hard to say
I could be yours alone
You will see someday
That all along the way
I was yours to hold.”

“Cuando pasa algo malo, pero malo de verdad, por mucho que llores, lo peor no es llorar, que eso a veces está bien, porque te quedas nuevo, lo peor empieza cuando no puedes llorar más, y entonces te das cuenta de que la tristeza es algo sucio, como un grumo gris, espeso, una pelota de barro dentro de los pulmones, que pesa, y la notas al respirar, todo el tiempo.”
Almudena Grandes

Pablo Neruda
“Las lágrimas que no se lloran
esperan en pequeños lagos?
O serán ríos invisibles
que corren hacia la tristeza?”
Pablo Neruda

Jack Gilbert
“Suddenly this defeat.
This rain.
The blues gone gray
And the browns gone gray
And yellow
A terrible amber.
In the cold streets
Your warm body.
In whatever room
Your warm body.
Among all the people
Your absence
The people who are always
Not you.


I have been easy with trees
Too long.
Too familiar with mountains.
Joy has been a habit.
Now
Suddenly
This rain.”
Jack Gilbert

Osho
“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.”
Osho, Everyday Osho: 365 Daily Meditations for the Here and Now

Vincent van Gogh
“The sadness will last forever.”
Vincent van Gogh

Lisa Unger
“I think most people are just trying to be happy, and that most of their actions, however misguided, are in line with that goal. Most people just want to feel they belong somewhere, want to be loved, and want to feel they're important to someone. If you really examine all the wrongheaded and messed-up things they do, they can most often be traced back to that basic desire. The abusers, the addicted, the cruel and unpleasant, the manipulators --these are just people who started this quest for happiness in the basement of their lives. Someone communicated to them through word or deed that they were undeserving, so they think they have to claw their way there over the backs of others, leaving scars and creating damage. Of course, they only create more misery for themselves and others.”
Lisa Unger, Sliver of Truth
