Do you know what your problem is? You can’t live with the idea that someone might leave.
It’s like Tolstoy said. Happiness is an allegory, unhappiness a story.
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.
I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.
Some say they get lost in books, but I find myself, again and again, in the pages of a good book. Humanly speaking, there is no greater teacher, no greater therapist, no greater healer of the soul, than a well-stocked library.
Love without hope is agony.
Full many a gem of purest ray serene
The dark unfathom’d caves of ocean bear:
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.
