Let your tears shine a light in this world

"Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a 'hot mess' or having 'too many issues' are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world." - Anthon St. Maarten 

Storms are named after people

"Do not fall in love with people like me. I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people."

- Caitlyn Siehl 

A wild thing

"I like to eat truly, drink truly, kiss truly, chat with friends truly, fall in love truly; and when you put so much into all of those things; it's a natural that you come out full of scars." 

- Joaquín Sabina

"I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself." - D. H. Lawrence

Claw marks

"You can tell so much about a person by the way they leave you." - Redvers Bailey

"Everything I've ever let go of has claw marks on it." - David Foster Wallace

Never convince someone of your worth

"I always felt that I had to fight to be loved. It took many hard lessons to learn that love does not require me to fight anything, just to accept it when it comes and return it. I'll say it again; in order to obtain love you must give it, even to yourself. Never convince someone of your worth who doesn't see or value it." - Becky Von Beaverhaussen 

He can't value you more than you value yourself

"You get what you give. If you love hard and purely, then someday you will be loved with the same strength, and that's when you will genuinely see that all the suffering was worth it. Don't get lost in the hard loving nor attached to the pain it brings - know your value, know what you're worth. Love but don't let people use you. Love others, but love yourself too." 

- Shammyr Cardona

We breathe love

"We have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. We have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human. We make horrible mistakes. It's how we learn. We breathe love. And it is inevitable." - Nayyirah Waheed
