Alice Hoffman
“He'd thought he was lost, but now he recognized that eternity was around him, like salt from a shaker or stars in the sky.”
Alice Hoffman, Local Girls

Nadège Richards

“I saw a dead bird flying through a broken sky. I heard it, and it said, "The world will never understand.”
Nadège Richards, 5 Miles

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it this brokenness inside me
“I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like I'm someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself
if I could just come in I swear I'll leave.
Won't take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.”
Miranda Lambert, Miranda Lambert - Revolution

Bryant McGill
“Reach deep within, and reconnect with the essence of your being.”
Bryant McGill, Voice of Reason

Andrew James Pritchard
“you must find yourself before you can know where you belong, yet to find yourself first you must know who you are. However, you will never really know who you are if you are always allowing other people to define who you should be, so be yourself and if you are still unsure of who you are then reinvent yourself.”
Andrew James Pritchard, Smoke and Mirrors

Bryant McGill
“We must become reacquainted with our true human selves.”
Bryant McGill, Voice of Reason

“As love leads the way, the steps will be made easy.”

Phen Weston
“Today words curve around my vision,
Stumbling from my parched core
To soak again those strands of silence.”
Phen Weston

Ash Parsons
“How everyone is struggling for something. Trying to keep the balance.

Struggling to find their way back. Doing the best they can with what they've been dealt. Staying in place, doing anything to keep from sinking. To keep from rising.

Until something changes. Like a day at school, a friend for lunch, someone standing up for you.

And the choice to feel. Standing before you.

Realizing what part is yours. What you can and can't do. Who you are. Who you are meant to be.

More than the sum of all your broken parts.”
Ash Parsons, Still Waters

Jason Reitman
“When my father was 17, he went to Montreal and found these submarine sandwich shops that were really successful, and weren't in Toronto [his home town]. So he went to my grandparents and said: "Look, you have to give me the seed money to open up one of these places. We'll make a fortune. They've got lines going round the block. There's nothing like that here." And my grandfather's response was: "Look, I'm sure these sandwiches are really good, and if we scraped the money together we could make a lot of money and your mother and I would be really proud of you, but you need to find something that has *magic* in it for you."

It was off of that conversation that my father went to college on a music scholarship, started a film club and became one of the most successful directors of all time.”
Jason Reitman

Thomas Szasz
“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds. It is something one creates.”
Thomas Szasz

“...unquestioning automatons
blindly marching to the beat -
an eerie crunching sound
hoards of shuffling feet...

(from silent moments)”
Muse, Enigmatic Evolution

José Ortega y Gasset
“He who does not really feel himself lost, is lost without remission; that is to say, he never finds himself, never comes up against his own reality.”

Laura McHugh
“I used to play a game where I imagined that someone had abandoned me in a strange place & I had to find my way back home-I thought I could do it blind, the same way a lost dog might trek a thousand miles to return to its owner, relying on some mysterious instinct that drew the heart back to where it belonged.”
Laura McHugh, Arrowood

Cheryl R. Cowtan
“An Indigo Bunting let out a trill, a cheery song, reminding me of better days, of hope and happiness and all the lofty promises a blue canary can sing about. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath of the heady morning air. Looking within myself, I searched for the man I once was.”
Cheryl R. Cowtan, Girl Desecrated: Vampires, Asylums and Highlanders 1984

C. JoyBell C.
“We can be walking around in this world, with bits and pieces of our souls scattered in different time loops and space cracks. You feel like you are always looking for yourself, because you actually are always looking for yourself! You're always looking for those bits and pieces of you. You've got to sit down and remember where you left them at. You've got to quiet the noise and go back to those loops in time and cracks in space that you forgot about and you need to understand yourself in those moments, and embrace yourself. And maybe even embrace those who were around you, with you. That's how you get those pieces back, that's how you sew them back into you.”
C. JoyBell C.
