Clementine von Radics
“There will always be those
who say you are too young and delicate
to make anything happen for yourself.
They don't see the part of you that smolders.
Don't let their doubting drown out
the sound of your own heartbeat.

You are the first drop of rain in a hurricane.

Your bravery builds beyond you.
You are needed by all the little girls
still living in secret, writing oceans
made of monsters, and
throwing like lightning.
You don't need to grow up
to find greatness.

You are so much stronger than the world
has ever believed you could be.
The world is waiting for you
to set it on fire. Trust in yourself

and burn.”
Clementine von Radics, Mouthful of Forevers

John Green
“Just like that. From a hundred miles an hour to asleep in a nanosecond. I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not f*ck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

"That was a really good metaphor.”
Brandon Sanderson, Firefight

Lang Leav
“The Butterfly Effect

Close your eyes and think about that boy. Tell me how he makes you feel. Let your mind trace over his tired shoulders. Allow your thoughts to linger on that beautiful smile. Take a deep breath and try to push those dark feelings aside. For once let go of the reins you've wrapped so tightly around your heart. I know you are scared. Who could blame you? Love is a hurricane wrapped inside a chrysalis. And you are a girl walking into the storm.”
Lang Leav, Memories

Sabrina Newby

“I light another cigarette. I'm starting to get nervous as fuck. I normally don't do pillow talk with girls I make love to. God, but I need this. Nobody really knows my story. They all think they do. I've buried the truth in a hurricane of words. That's really what I did. A novel every six months or so. Damn, I hide a lot.
"I don't know. I've tried replacing her with somebody else. Believe me, I tried. But I can't. I spent ten years of my life chasing her ghost. I try to find her in other women. It's unfair to them. That's why I just them home. I fuck them, love them, then I kick them out. I don't want them knowing.”

Ariel Francisco
“But now I know that a twinkling star is just
a satellite, another man-made thing

not quite as far away as the stars, though far enough
to see the world as a whole. Far enough
to see the hurricane somewhere out

in the Atlantic, spinning itself into nothingness,
dissipating under its own destructive power.
Far enough to see who still has electricity

and who doesn't, and yet far enough to not see
me standing in my doorway. Far enough
to not see itself reflected in the water. I toss

the bottle into the flooded street, watch
the ripples, the way the movement makes
the stars reflections waver, twinkle,

all becoming satellites, watchers, until a new
flickering catches my eye...”
Ariel Francisco, Before Snowfall, After Rain

Chris Ernest Nelson
“I know Good will triumph.
This veil of evil will be carried away
by the sweet breeze of Perfect Love.
Though Love comes like a whisper,
it has the power of a hurricane–
And when it passes over us,
the whole of Creation will be remade.”
Chris Ernest Nelson

Steven Magee

Munia Khan
“Nature is never devoid of storms and our life’s nature is quite
similar. Many storms gather, occur, and pass away in one lifetime.
Sometimes one huge hurricane may tend to destroy everything in
our lives, yet we should not fear the tempest. A storm comes to life
like a lesson sometimes, when we have no choice but to learn from
the atmospheric gale.”
Munia Khan, Attainable
