“Falling In Love Is Like Owning A Dog.

Throw things away and love will bring them back,
again, and again, and again.
But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.”
Taylor Mali

“We're the most aggressively inarticulate generation to come along since, you know, a long time ago!”
Taylor Mali

“Because once upon a time, we grew up on stories and the voices in which they were told. We need words to hold us and the world to behold us for us to truly know our own souls.”
Taylor Mali
