Quotes – I try to walk the line!

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

“I am the ocean. You are fascinated by my depth and emptiness, but you are too afraid to plunge in deep to learn more about me. You float in the shallows and say you love my salty tears, you love my waves, you love the beautiful shells I churn out. You are aware there are monsters deep within me, but you make no attempt to try and find them; you make no attempt to see them face-to-face. You are happy in your ignorance, and I wrap myself around you as you frolic in the beauty you see at my surface and ignore the horrors you know are there. I kiss you like I kiss the shoreline, pulling away but always rushing back. You ignore the fact that I swallow the light every night, and I am controlled by the ever-changing moon. You do not know everything about me, but maybe that’s for the best. Knowledge would not be power in this case; knowledge would suck you into inky depths of my madness and cause you to drown. I am the ocean and you are simply a tourist; you are not an explorer. I do not blame you for this one bit.”

“Face it―nobody cares.
But so what? Their apathy doesn’t diminish your worth. Learn from it. Make it your job to care for those around you so they can’t say the same thing.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich

“Nothing is fair. The most one can hope is for things to be logical. Justice is a rare illness in a world that is otherwise a picture of health.”

“You end up becoming someone you see in the eyes of those you love.”

“Everything is a tale. What we believe, what we know, what we remember, even what we dream. Everything is a story, a narrative, a sequence of events with characters communicating an emotional content. We only accept as true what can be narrated.”

“A Gentleman’s agreement cannot be broken without breaking the person who has entered into it.”

“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.”

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

“Love one another,
but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between
the shores of your souls.”

Chanyado. Shade. Respite from the sun. A place under the tree to rest my head, and wiggle my toes out in the sun.
