You will not find the warrior, the poet, the philosopher or the Christian by staring into his eyes as if he were your mistress: better fight beside him, read with him, argue with him, pray with him.

C.S. Lewis :: The Four Loves

August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.

It’s never quite right, the way people look,
the way the music sounds, the way the words are
written.

It’s never quite right, all the things we are
taught, all the loves we chase, all the deaths we
die, all the lives we live,
they are never quite right,
they are hardly close to right
these lives we live
one after the other,
piled there as history,
the waste of the species,
the crushing of the light and the way,

it’s not quite right,
it’s hardly right at all.

—Charles Bukowski, Cut While Shaving

And a mistake repeated more than once is a decision.

For Women Who Are Difficult To Love by Warsan Shire

I, too, remember the feeling. You are caught between all that was and all that must be. You feel lost.

—Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of The World

Just because two people are capable of deeply hurting each other over and over again does not make them passionate, star-crossed lovers. It makes them two people who keep doing terrible things to each other. Someone’s ability to make you completely and utterly soul-crushingly miserable does not mean they are a soul mate with some deep insight into your psyche. They are just someone who is really good at making you unhappy.

Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living.

—Thank you for the reminder. Needed to read this.
