"You deserve to live through all of your emotions, all of your states of motivation, and know that as long as you are treating everyone with kindness (including yourself), you have nothing to be ashamed of.”
I agree with everything
you’ve ever said or thought in your life.
- Matthew Thorburn, “Now is Always a Good Time” (via larmoyante)
My mother told me that my fingertips are long enough touch the moon, but soft enough to catch the stardust.
How easy life is when it’s easy, and how hard when it’s hard.
- Philip Roth, The Professor of Desire (via libraryland)
I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at Christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when peole smile at me, when people are polite to me. There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful; I have every reason in the world to be happy.
We are told that when Hölderlin went ‘mad,’ he constantly repeated, ‘Nothing is happening to me, nothing is happening to me.
It is always hard like this, not having a world,
to imagine one, to go to the far edge
apart and imagine, to wall whether in
or out, to build a kind of cage for the sake
of feeling the bars around us, to give shape to a world.
And oh, it is always a world and not the world.
- William Bronk, from “At Tikal,” in American Poetry since 1950: Innovators & Outsiders, ed. by Eliot Weinberger (Marsilio Publishers, 1993)
