i continuously find great comfort in the fact that so many writers have gone ahead of me
and have been brave enough to say the things i would so need to hear.

each quote is entirely applicable to this post graduate life of mine --
and i hang on to every word as if my entire life depended upon it.

+++

She felt very young; at the same time unspeakably aged. She sliced like a knife through everything; at the same time was outside, looking on. // Virginia Woolf

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. // E.E. Cummings

Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether
they love or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art. // Andy Warhol

We are all broken. That's how the light gets in. // Ernest Hemingway

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good. // John Steinbeck

Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know. // Pema Chodron

"Sometimes it takes darkness or the sweet confinement of your aloneness to realize that anyone or anything that does not bring you alive is too small for you." // David Whyte


And you tried to change, didn't you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake...You can't make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love. // Warsan Shire
