You can hide memories, but you can’t erase the history that produced them. If nothing else, you need to remember that. You can’t erase history, or change it. It would be like destroying yourself.

No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice. None of this matters. We’re just warming up.
I know I said I was having a break from posting, but this was just too good not too post. Enjoy. x
You will notice that what we are aiming at when we fall in love is a very strange paradox. The paradox consists of the fact that, when we fall in love, we are seeking to re-find all or some of the people to whom we were attached as children. On the other hand, we ask our beloved to correct all of the wrongs that these early parents or siblings inflicted upon us. So that love contains in it the contradiction: The attempt to return to the past and the attempt to undo the past.

This is what I love about Winter. You wake up in the middle of the night, maybe just to pee or get water or something, look out the window and see this. It’s so beautiful. And it’s silent; you have no idea that it’s happening until you just look. It almost seems fake. And it makes your bed seem way more comfortable, for whatever reason.

New York is not a city. It’s a world.

She scares the hell out of me and calms my soul at the same time. Maybe that’s what love is—a total contradiction that somehow balances out.
Beauty can only take you so far. Can you find a lady who’s valued her mind more than her curves. A lady of ambition, if you will, that can not only hold a conversation about dreams and aspirations, but also the line of work she performs to make those things happen. I dig a girl who can speak bravely, boldly, with conviction. She handles criticism without retaliation, walks without fear.. the type that’ll have you craving some food for thought, before the idea of adoring her physicality.

Things don’t always happen when you want it to, but sometimes it happens when you unconsciously need it to. You can go on fabricating reasons to believe why everything is your fault and continually let life desecrate itself, or you can climb familiar mountains a second time because the change you seek always starts from the bottom-up.
