Having the love of your life break up with you and say ‘we can still be friends’ is like your dog dying and your mom saying ‘you can still keep it.’


I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries.

Theodore Isaac Rubin


om jag var en färg
skulle jag vara röd

om jag var ett djur
skulle jag vara en pingvin

om jag var ett nummer
skulle jag vara en femma

om jag var en sång
skulle jag vara Show Me Heaven med Maria Mckee

om jag var mitt i en dröm
skulle jag sitta i vackra vintageklänningar och kyssas i ett sagoslott

om jag var en blomma
skulle jag vara en orkidée

om jag var ett instrument
skulle jag vara en flygel

om jag var ett klädesplagg
skulle jag vara en bakelse till klänning full med tyll

om jag var en sko
skulle jag vara en klackesko med rosett och vackert mönster

om jag var en dryck
skulle jag vara en alldeles speciell ekologisk coca-cola utan onödiga tillsatser.

om jag var ett fotografi
skulle jag vara ett svartvitt fotografi som andades magik

om jag var en känd person
skulle jag vara någon vacker konstnär

om jag var ett väder
skulle jag vara vintersol

om jag var en doft
skulle jag dofta liljekonvalj


We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves like Benjamin Franklin meant.
That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying.

Ellen Pompeo, Grey’s Anatomy


Deep down, at our core, there are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear. From love flows happiness, contentment, peace, and joy. From fear comes anger, hate, anxiety, and guilt.

David Kessler


And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.

— Douglas Coupland


May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."

Neil Gaiman
