“We’ll always fight, but we’ll always make up as well. that’s what sisters do: we argue, point out each other’s frailties, mistakes, and bad judgement, we flash the insecurities we’ve had since childhood, and then we come back together. Until the next time.” -Lisa See (Shanghai Girls)
I want to share my heart; will you tell me your dreams? Can I hear your deepest fears and your strongest wishes? Will you tell me very honestly what you think of me, of our government, of nature, of life, of the taste of coffee? Will you recite to me the poetry of your heart? Will you tell me all of the silly things you think about during the day, and tell me who has been getting on your nerves lately? Will you weave me into your life little by little, until I can no longer tell that I wasn’t originally a part of it?
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
“The dark and the light, they exist side by side,
Sometimes overlapping, one explaining the other.
The darkened path is as illuminated as the lightened,
Only the fear of the dark keeps us from seeing our way.”
―Raven Davies (Between Here & There)
“Undo it, take it back, make every day the previous one until I am returned to the day before the one that made you gone. Or set me on an airplane traveling west, crossing the date line again and again, losing this day, than that, until the day of loss still lies ahead, and you are here instead of sorrow.”
