The only regret I will have in dying is if it is not for love.

Until you’re about the age of twenty, you read everything, and you like it simply because you are reading it. Then between twenty and thirty you pick what you want, and you read the best, you read all the great works. After that you sit and wait for them to be written. But you know, the least known, the least famous writers, they are the better ones.

That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.

Before I give my body, I must give my thoughts, my mind, my dreams. And you weren’t having any of those.

Love who you love while you have them. That’s all you can do. Let them go when you must. If you know how to love, you’ll never run out.

asked: I am a KU journalism student, and Doug Ward showed us your blog in Infomania! Basically what I am trying to say is I have since been obsessed with all you have put on it. I want to start a blog like that some day and if I did, I strive for it to be similar in style to yours. I am in love with words and you seem to beautifully string the best quotes, titles, and pictures all together. And I love your original writing as well. Anyways, thank you for being an inspiration to my future work.

This means more to me than you’ll ever know. Please tell Prof. Ward hello! And keep on, keeping on, you lovely soul! XO
Let it be. Let it come, whatever it is. Breathe deeply and know that if you let it come and feel it all – it won’t kill you. It will pass away soon enough and leave you better, kinder, softer, and stronger. Let the brutal make you even more beautiful.

hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up
I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go
but I am here to learn.
