"To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it."
"There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live."
A hunger that was beating inside her chest
A voice that demanded to be still
So she wrote about a journey or a quest
About a passion lingering and beautifying
As that of nightingales song
Remarkable and profound words
Spilling on the empty paper sheets
All these words came together as a work of art
A master piece she would call it
From a far of course
For if you decided to analyze the ink that was spilled out
Make no mistake your heart would come to tremble
Behind each sentences lied agonies and anxieties
Behind the written symbols were messages of a lonely heart, a torn soul
But now look a far and try not to question the beauty of it
It’s more pleasant from afar. Keep it always on distance."
"People think of education as something they can finish."
"Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it… it’s just easier if you do."
"Three months ago, if you asked me, I would have told you that if you really loved someone, you’d let them go. But now I look at you, and I see that I’ve been wrong. If you really love someone, I think you have to take them back."
"Sometimes it seems safer to hold it all in, where the only person who can judge is yourself."
"Things aren’t always going to be fair in the real world, that’s just the way it is but for the most part you get what you give. Let me ask you all a question. What’s worse: not getting everything you wished for or getting it but finding out it’s not enough? The rest of your life is being shaped right now with the dreams you chase, the choices you make and the person you decide to be. The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now."
"As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better."
"There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark. Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless."
