"So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword- it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines."
"Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations."
"If I breathe you in and you breathe me out, I swear we can breathe forever. I swear I’ll find summer in your winter and spring in your autumn and always, hands at the ends of your fingers, arms at the ends of your shoulders and I swear, when we run out of forever, when we run out of air, your name will be the last word that my lungs make air for."
"Faith makes all things possible… love makes all things easy."
"I love you, that means I’m not just here for the pretty parts. I’m here no matter what."
"To know what a person has done, and to know who a person is, are very different things."
"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever."

What distinguishes men of genuine achievement from the rest of us is not so much their intellectual powers and aptitudes as their curiosity, their energy, their fullest use of their potentialities. Nobody really knows how smart or talented he is until he finds the incentives to use himself to the fullest."
"Absence is a house so vast
that inside you will pass through its walls
and hang pictures on the air."
Pablo Neruda, excerpt from “Sonnet XCIV” (via larmoyante
"She lives the poetry she cannot write."
"Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted."
