“I learned never to empty
the well of my writing,
but always to stop

and let it refill at night
from the springs that fed it.”

“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”

We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these​ sympathetic fibres, our actions run as causes and return to us as results.
~ Herman Melville

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That’s how the light gets in.
– Leonard Cohen
