Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

“Kiss her. Slowly, take your time, there’s no place you’d rather be. Kiss her but not like you’re waiting for something else, like your hands beneath her shirt or her skirt or tangled up in her bra straps. Nothing like that. Kiss her like you’ve forgotten any other mouth that your mouth has ever touched. Kiss her with a curious childish delight. Laugh into her mouth, inhale her sighs. Kiss her until she moans. Kiss her with her face in your hands. Or your hands in her hair. Or pulling her closer at the waist. Kiss her like you want to take her dancing. Like you want to spin her into an open arena and watch her look at you like you’re the brightest thing she’s ever seen. Kiss her like she’s the brightest thing you’ve ever seen. Take your time. Kiss her like the first and only piece of chocolate you’re ever going to taste. Kiss her until she forgets how to count. Kiss her stupid. Kiss her silent. Come away, ask her what 2+2 is and listen to her say your name in answer.”
Azra Tabassum

“Have faith that your child's brain is an evolving planet that rotates at its own speed. It will naturally be attracted to or repel certain subjects. Be patient. Just as there are ugly ducklings that turn into beautiful swans, there are rebellious kids and slow learners that turn into serious innovators and hardcore intellectuals.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Rebecca Solnit

Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“It wasn’t until I slowed the car and rolled down the windows that I realized I spend most of my days driving ‘through’ life without driving ‘in’ life. So, I’ve decided to walk because the pace is slower and the windows are always down.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Christophe Galfard
“A clock that is moving through space at a very fast speed does not tick at the same rate as a slow-moving watch gently attached to your wrist as you stroll on a tropical beach. The idea of a universal time - a godlike clock that could somehow sit outside our universe and measure, in one go, the movement of everything in it, how its evolution unfolds, how old it is and all that - does not exist.”
Christophe Galfard, The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time, and Beyond

Mitch Albom
“It's only horrible if you see it that way," Morrie said. "It's horrible to watch my body slowly wilt away to nothing. But it's also wonderful because of all the time I get to say good-bye."

Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Kamand Kojouri
“All this waiting.
Waiting for the rain to
stop. Waiting in traffic.
Waiting for the bill.
Waiting at the airport
for an old friend.
Waiting to depart.
Then,
there’s the big waiting:
waiting to grow up. Waiting
for love. Waiting to show your
your parents that when you
have kids you’ll be different.
Waiting to retire. Waiting for
death.
Why do we think waiting
is the antithesis of life
when it is almost
all of it?”
Kamand Kojouri

Israelmore Ayivor
“Break out to go out
___________________

The birds dare to break the egg shell
It does so in order to get out of that Hell
When it finally succeeds, it’ll then fly
To its comfort zone it’ll say bye

Are you being confined in a small space
How long will you remain at that place?
Before you can explore more territories,
Break away from the former glories.

Yesterday’s excellence is today’s average
You must strive to be better age after age
Never accept the available mediocrity
As the only preferable opportunity

Decide to grow from below to hero
And make it a point to vacate level zero
Reach out and arise with power
God’s blessings on you, will shower

Agree to grow, never attempt to be slow
Be not afraid. Never doubt. You’ll flow
The grace of God will be your guide
Taking you along, side by side.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Become a Better You

“Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow.”

Luciano De Crescenzo
“... quando un cristiano sente il desiderio di prendere un caffè, non è perché vuole bere un caffè, ma perché ha avvertito il bisogno di entrare di nuovo in contatto con l'umanità, e quindi deve interrompere il lavoro che stava facendo, invitare uno o più colleghi ad andare a prendersi il caffè insieme, camminare al sole fino al bar preferito, vincere una piccola gara con annessa colluttazione per chi offre i suddetti caffè, fare un complimento alla cassiera, due chiacchiere sportive con il barista ed il tutto senza dare nessuna istruzione sul tipo di caffè preferito, dal momento che un vero barista deve già conoscere il gusto del suo cliente.”
Luciano De Crescenzo, Così parlò Bellavista. Napoli, amore e libertà

“Do we ever get slow rain?”
Anthony T. Hincks

Akshay Vasu
“He sat beside the window in the dark, with his eyes closed. Hearing to the sound of the rain. The whisky in his glass burnt his throat, while the smoke of his cigarette filled his lungs and the fire inside his heart consumed his soul slowly.”
Akshay Vasu

Mitch Albom
“I asked Morrie if he felt sorry for himself.
"Sometimes, in the mornings," he said.
"That's when I mourn. I feel around my body, I move my fingers and my hands - whatever I can still move - and I mourn what I've lost. I mourn the slow, insidious way in which I'm dying. But then I stop mourning.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Simone Elkeles
“I thought we were gonna take this relationship slow."
"A back rub is harmless."
My eyes roam over her kick-ass bikini-covered bod. "I'll have you know I've been intimate with girls wearin' a lot more.”
Simone Elkeles, Perfect Chemistry

“Snails were built for comfort. Not for speed!”
Anthony T. Hincks
