Thinking about the past makes me both unbelievably happy and inconsolably sad at the same time
"I was settled into nothingness; a kind of non-being, and I accepted it. It didn’t make for an interesting person. I didn’t want to be interesting, it was too hard. What I really wanted was only a soft, hazy space to live in, and to be left alone."
Poetry doesn’t have to rhyme, it just has to touch someone where your hands couldn’t."
"Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."
Quote attributed to Sir Richard Steele and Joseph Addison
(if you know who’s the author, please tell us)
"Coffee is far more than a beverage. It is an invitation to life, disguised as a cup of warm liquid. It’s a trumpet wake-up call or a gentle rousing hand on your shoulder…Coffee is an experience, an offer, a rite of passage, a good excuse to get together."
No pressure, no diamonds"
