It burns, it shines

‘Does the Sun ask itself,

“Am I good? Am I worthwhile? Is there enough of me?”

No, it burns and it shines.

Does the Sun ask itself,

“What does the moon think of me? What does Mars feel about me today?”

No, it burns, it shines.

“Am I as big as suns in other galaxies?”

No, it burns, it shines’

-Andrea Dworkin


I Choose…

“I choose…

to live by choice, not by chance;

to make changes, not excuses;

to be motivated, not manipulated;

to be useful, not used;

to excel, not to compete;

I choose self-esteem, not self-pity;

I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinion of others.”


Fear is a waste of time

“There are two possibilities: one is that there’s more to life than the physical life, that our souls will find an even higher place to dwell when this life is over. If that’s true, there’s no reason to fear failure or death. The other is that this life is all there is. And if that’s true, then we have to really live it-we have to take it for everything it has and ‘die enormous’ instead of ‘living dormant’. Either way, fear is a waste of time.”

-Jay Z

He’s not perfect

“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyse. Smile when he makes happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”

-Bob Marley
