    Sylvia Plath

    One of my favorite quotes by a lady who personified depth and could put her thoughts into words like no other:“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.” So simple, yet so much punch in a few words.

    I watched Still Alice-- a movie about a

    linguistic professor struggling with Alzheimer's. Her story really touched home with my own struggle with mental illness as I understood the difficulty of losing things you worked all your life to attain--- particularly ones of the mind and intellect. With me, some of that was...

    Be Nice To Everyone You Meet. They’re Fighting A Battle You Have Absolutely No Idea About.

    I found this quote whose author's name is

    unknown and thought I'd share. It makes a lot of sense. "I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; Find what makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you're set. Promise." I like the quote. :)

    Do it anyway

    There is a tide in the affairs of men.

    Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. -Shakespeare

    You don't need another human being to complete

    you. But let's be honest, having your wounds kissed by somebody that doesn't see them as disasters in your soul but as cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world. Emery Allen

    People think a soulmate is your perfect fit,

    Conversation

     A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That's why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet.  Truman Capote

    It Isn't.....

    It isn't the things that happen to us in our lives that cause us to suffer, it's how we relate to the things that happen to us that causes us to suffer.
