“sometimes bad things happen to make good things happen.”
Glendy Vanderah, Where the Forest Meets the Stars

Ocean Vuong
“I am thinking of beauty again, how some things are hunted because we have deemed them beautiful. If, relative to the history of our planet, an individual life is so short, a blink, as they say, then to be gorgeous, even from the day you're born to the day you die, is to be gorgeous only briefly.”
Ocean Vuong, On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

Michael  Bowe
“True accomplishment comes from bettering yourself, not defeating another.”
Michael Bowe, The Weight of a Moment

“People think they have to say something, and it never makes me feel better.” “I know. I’ve decided language isn’t as advanced as we think it is. We’re still apes trying to express our thoughts with grunts while most of what we want to communicate stays locked in our brains.”
Glendy Vanderah, Where the Forest Meets the Stars

“When I am around old people,
they think I am too foolish.
When I am around young people,
they think I am too intelligent.
When I am around learned people,
they think I am too simple.
When I am around educated people,
they think I am too wise.

When I am around proud people,
they think I am too weak.
When I am around mighty people,
they think I am too meek.
When I am around cowardly people,
they think I am too reckless.
When I am around bold people,
they think I am too brave.

When I am around modest people,
they think I am too arrogant.
When I am around eminent people,
they think I am too humble.
When I am around virtuous people,
they think I am too complacent.
When I am around immoral people,
they think I am too narrow.”
Matshona Dhliwayo
