"You will not be the same person anymore, you’ll leave them behind, along with everyone else. You’ll become your books, your favorite coffee, the music you listen to, the poetry you write. You’ll be the art you make, the person you love, the mask you wear. You’ll be the fake smile, the real cries. You will be dropped, and broken, you will pick up the pieces on your own and see that no one else will be their to sweep them up. You’ll open the door for them to enter your life, and shut it on their way out. You will be pushed and pulled, you will feel yourself ripping from the seams. You will feel more when things are going wrong, and forget what happiness really is when things are going right. You will find that when they leave, they’re gone. Not everything deserves a second chance, because first impressions can mean everything. You’ll teach yourself right even if it’s someone else’s wrong. You’ll learn that happiness is different for everyone, and so is life."

"Boys cry
Cigarettes do kill,
parents lie,
boats sink,
flowers die,
Life goes on,
with or without you."

"I’m not surprised that you don’t have a boyfriend. I don’t want you to take this the wrong way, I just don’t think that very many people, especially your age, would be able to keep up with you. You know who you are and you know what you want to do. Your eyes light up when you talk about your passions, and you’re not afraid to defy social norms and be who you are. And all this, this scares people."

"Peace is not so much a political mandate as it is a shared state of consciousness that remains elevated and intact only to the degree that those who value it volunteer their existence as living examples of the same… Peace ends with the unraveling of individual hope and the emergence of the will to worship violence as a healer of private and social dis-ease."

"The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself."
