“I don't need anything to get high. I'm high on life.”
Melissa de la Cruz, Blue Bloods

Barbara Kingsolver
“In my own worst seasons I've come back from the colorless world of despair by forcing myself to look hard, for a long time, at a single glorious thing: a flame of red geranium outside my bedroom window. And then another: my daughter in a yellow dress. And another: the perfect outline of a full, dark sphere behind the crescent moon. Until I learned to be in love with my life again. Like a stroke victim retraining new parts of the brain to grasp lost skills, I have taught myself joy, over and over again(15).”
Barbara Kingsolver, High Tide in Tucson : Essays from Now or Never

Kiersten White
“The last time she was up here, she had been... staring up at the sky and dreaming of stars. Now, she looked down and plotted flames.”
Kiersten White, And I Darken

Michelle Obama
“Since childhood, I’d believed it was important to speak out against bullies while also not stooping to their level. And to be clear, we were now up against a bully, a man who among other things demeaned minorities and expressed contempt for prisoners of war, challenging the dignity of our country with practically his every utterance. I wanted Americans to understand that words matter—that the hateful language they heard coming from their TVs did not reflect the true spirit of our country and that we could vote against it. It was dignity I wanted to make an appeal for—the idea that as a nation we might hold on to the core thing that had sustained my family, going back generations. Dignity had always gotten us through. It was a choice, and not always the easy one, but the people I respected most in life made it again and again, every single day. There was a motto Barack and I tried to live by, and I offered it that night from the stage: When they go low, we go high.”
Michelle Obama, Becoming

Sebastian Marincolo
“Marijuana enhances our mind in a way that enables us to take a different perspective from 'high up', to see and evaluate our own lives and the lives of others in a privileged way. Maybe this euphoric and elevating feeling of the ability to step outside
the box and to look at life’s patterns from this high perspective is the inspiration behind the slang term “high” itself.”
Sebastian Marincolo

J.R. Rim
“Flying starts from the ground. The more grounded you are, the higher you fly.”

Beatrice Sparks
“I feel like Alice in Wonderland. Maybe Lewis G Carroll was on drugs too.”
Beatrice Sparks, Go Ask Alice

“I was coming down off the last painkiller left in my dresser drawer after Autumn tossed my stash. In that moment I was so groggy and happy I would have accepted a date with Oscar the Grouch - and planned to do some serious feeling up on the green furry beast too. Yeah, stooping to pharmaceutical-inspired sex fantasies about garbage can Sesame Street characters - that had to be the best Just Say No drug lecture a girl in a leg cast could ever receive to make her go cold turkey off the meds.”
Rachel Cohn, Cupcake

Sebastian Marincolo
“The movie Koyaanisqatsi shows non-commented time-lapse footage and focuses our attention on the very rhythm of our civilized modern life and nature. A marijuana high can do something for a user similar to what this time-lapse footage does. The enhancement of episodic memory and the acceleration of associative streams of memories can alter and enhance our recognition of patterns in our lives in various ways. If we are presented with quick associative chains of past experiences, we can see a pattern in a body of information that is usually not at once presented to our “inner eye” as such.”
Sebastian Marincolo

Munia Khan
“Eagle's flight of loneliness soars so high
Around its sigh, no more alone the sky
Other birds remain away, clouds pass by
Between shrouds of life and haze sun rays die”
Munia Khan

“To jump over centuries
In one step is impossible.
Jump too high or far,
You’ll be way too late.”
Dejan Stojanovic, Circling: 1978-1987

Douglas Coupland
“The world was so unbearably pretty, and it continued being so all the way down the mountain to school. I felt slightly high because of the beauty, and the inside of my head tickled. I wondered if this is how artists go through life, with all of its sensations tickling their craniums like a peacock feather..”
Douglas Coupland, Hey Nostradamus!

“Am I high now? Is this what being high feels like?'

“Find me in words
That has not been written
In songs,
Yet to be sung

In an empty sea,
Or the brightest moon
Or the gloomiest sun

Because yeu will not find me
Like yeu find other people
I paint my soul in dreams
I live for the person i have never been

Though life is quite simple
When yeu want to understand it simply

I am here
Waiting for doors to open in the sky
I am here
Waiting for doors to open in the sky”
Sandesh Hukpachongbang

“I looked around at all the college kids who were getting away from their parents for the first time, all these kids ranting and raving about their first drunk or first high, acting as if they’d made the most remarkable discovery.”
Michael J Heil, Pursued: God’s relentless pursuit and a drug addict’s journey to finding purpose

“It was my norm to go to events high. I passed my driver’s exam high on weed, and I had intentionally gone to detention shrooming, just to see if I could do it without getting caught. I was determined to convince the world that every form of drug use should be legalized, determined to overthrow the authorities by proving their fickle policies futile. I was an advocate of anarchy, dead set on self-satisfaction. As a result, I went through most of high school either high, drunk, or locked up, with some sort of crumbled prescription up my nose.”
Michael J Heil, Pursued: God’s relentless pursuit and a drug addict’s journey to finding purpose

Steven Magee
“The Ukrainian and Russian death and injured tolls are high in the Ukraine war due to western supplied weaponry.”
Steven Magee

“They didn’t seem to need alcohol or drugs to be happy, or confident, or to have a good time. They seemed to get high off life itself and frequently delighted in the simple things. They were generous and would offer to buy my meal whenever we went out. In the end, it was their kindness that drew me back, not just the girls, but all of them. I was used to friends keeping me around because I could get them drugs, get them invited to the trendiest parties. I was used to friends who would lie to me and sleep with my girlfriend. I was used to friends who always measured me and compared themselves to me, friends who discarded me as soon as they realized I wasn’t game for whatever it was they were scheming. These people were so kind that it confused me. They actually cared about me, who I was, my past, my problems. And they wanted the best for me.”
Michael J Heil, Pursued: God’s relentless pursuit and a drug addict’s journey to finding purpose

“But then that's the crux of love, isn't it? It is very much a high, a high people thrive on. One that can rip your soul apart once you have lost it.”
Kate Stewart, Exodus
