"Love me fiercely and without apology."
"People say the journey is more important than the destination. But I am constantly the journey, the stepping stone used by people to discover what they deserve, before they leave on a path to find it elsewhere. I don’t want that with you. I want to be the place where you end up. The place that along your way, you decide is where you want to stay. The place that you feel lucky to have found, because in your eyes, it is perfect for building a home."
"We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk."
"No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted."
"She didn’t always get my heart racing. Sometimes she was the only one that could make it still."

"Superman never knew kryptonite like you."
"She holds her hair up with only two chopsticks and a bobby pin.
Think Atlas. Think shoulders.
When your sadness starts to feast,
she carries the light down from the
mountain and hands it to you,
tells you to set it on fire.
Think Prometheus. Think savior.
On Sunday, she steps out of the shower
and you don’t think you’ve ever seen
anything more beautiful than
the way she walks towards you
with a towel on her head,
water clinging to her like there is
nowhere else it would rather be.
Think Aphrodite. Think sea foam.
You love her like mythology.
You love her like the impossible stories of Gods and monsters.
When she sings, think fairies.
Think mermaids. Think hymns.
She is the face of the river that
Narcissus fell in love with,
confusing hers for his own.
She is Medusa’s fury,
You are kissing her in a crowded
restaurant and it feels like praying.
You are watching her instead of the
and you don’t even notice."

Nine times out of ten: when I call someone beautiful, I’m not talking about their shirt, or their hair, or their new way of applying makeup… I honestly could not care less what someone looks like… I’m talking about them. Their soul, their actions, what drives them to be who they are. What words…
"All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart."
I am not you
you are not me
I do not feel
what you feel
or see what you see
everything affects us differently
so sometimes being right
really doesn’t matter
but being kind

"You are not what has happened to you. You are what you choose to become."
I fell for a girl
who is a teacher
when I look at the stars
they look just like her eyes
so I am almost certain
she was the one
that taught them how to shine

"Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation."
"We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us—that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect."
"I love you, that means I’m not just here for the pretty parts. I’m here no matter what."
