“Do not do what someone else could do as well as you. Do not say, do not write what someone else could say, could write as well as you. Care for nothing in yourself but what you feel exists nowhere else. And, out of yourself create, impatiently or patiently, the most irreplaceable of beings.”
André Gide

but ships that sail our weeping."

“In the argument, y’know, between hate and love, it’s really up to each one of us. In our hearts or wherever. Each of us had to take a stand every single day and say which side we’re on. And I dunno for sure, but maybe the whole purpose of evil in this world is to get people who aren’t really good and who aren’t really bad to stand up and, y’know, be better. Maybe without evil, the just people of the world who happen to be just going along, living their lives and minding their own business…maybe without evil, they’d never find the courage to come forward and do the right thing.”
James Lecesne, Absolute Brightness

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”
