"Where so many hours have been spent in convincing myself that I am right, is there not some reason to fear I may be wrong?"
~ Jane Austen
08:47"to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you’ve held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?
Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again." — "The Thing Is," Ellen Bass (via commovente)

08:41"You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect." — T.B. LaBerge // Things I’m Still Learning at 25 (via veganvibez)
