I’m a very ordinary human being; I just happen to like reading books.

The realization that you deserve everything and nothing at the same time is a hard pill to swallow

Do not mock a pain that you haven’t endured.

Feelings come and feelings go. There is no need to fear them and no need to crave them. Be open to your feelings and experience them while they are here. Then be open to the feelings that will come next. Your feelings are a part of your experience. Yet no mere feeling, however intense it may seem, is your permanent reality.

People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

I wish I knew how to love someone without killing myself. How to mend hearts without breaking my own. How to kiss and not create bruises.
