Warsan Shire
“two people who were once very close can
without blame
or grand betrayal
become strangers.
perhaps this is the saddest thing in the world.”
Warsan Shire

Graham Greene
“O God, You've done enough, You've robbed me of enough, I'm too tired and old to learn to love, leave me alone for ever.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

Warsan Shire
“how far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps?
how often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short?
why do you find the unavailable so alluring?
where did it begin? what went wrong? and who made you feel so worthless?
if they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?
all this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin?
and what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it?
how are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?
where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?
where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?”
Warsan Shire

Joseph Conrad
“It is my belief no man ever understands quite his own artful dodges to escape from the grim shadow of self-knowledge.”
Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim

Matthew Dicks
“You have to be the bravest person in the world to go out every day, being yourself when no one likes who you are.”
Matthew Dicks, Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend
