"A writer paradoxically seeks the truth and tells lies every step of the way. It's a lie if you make something up. But if you make it up in the name of the truth, then you give your heart to expressing it clearly." Jan 21, 2017 03:08AM

John Paul II
“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.

It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.”
Pope John Paul II

Donald Miller
“Everybody has to leave, everybody has to leave their home and come back so they can love it again for all new reasons.”
Donald Miller, Through Painted Deserts: Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road

John Green
“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

Heart and Brain (Literature & Fiction)

Description: A little something I wrote a little over a year ago, found it in one of my many, many blogs online. This is the story of two friends Heart and Brian, and Heart's love problems. It's not romance, but it has a hint of it, or lack of it, actually. :) And no, there is no typo in the title. :) Thought it's appropriate to post here (especially the second chapter, given the nature of this site.
