"I wish you could live in my brain for a week. It is washed with the most violent waves of emotion. Do we then know nobody?—only our own version of them, which, as likely as not, are emanations from ourselves.'
Virginia Woolf

"I learned that it was in hard times that people usually changed the course of their life; in good times, they frequently only talked about change. Hard times forced them to overcome the doubts that normally gave them pause. It surprised me how often we hold ourselves back until we have no choice."

"

But the real difficulties, the real arts of survival, seem to lie in more subtle realms. There, what’s called for is a kind of resilience of the psyche, a readiness to deal with what comes next. These captives lay out in a stark and dramatic way what goes on in every life: the transitions whereby you cease to be who you were. Sometimes an old photograph, an old friend, an old letter, will remind you that you are not who you once were, for that person who dwelt among them, valued this, chose that, wrote thus, no longer exists. Without noticing it you traversed a great distance; the strange has become familiar and the familiar if not strange at least awkward or uncomfortable, an out-grown garment.

Some people inherit values and practices as a house they inhabit; some of us have to burn down that house, find our own ground, build from scratch, even as a psychological metamorphosis. As a cultural metamorphosis the transition is far more dramatic.

"How naive was I, to think that the love could cancel out the sadness somehow? I looked at you one day and instead of feeling sad I felt this kind of bliss in my mind, I felt the blood in my veins start to flow in a different direction. I thought the smile on my face would last forever, I thought the sadness had finally made its way out of me. But the sadness never left, it just waited patiently inside me as the love painted over it. I should have known that love cannot cure sadness. I should have known that a girl with eyes like an eclipse could not take away the continuous aching, but only numb it for a while. I’m sorry for turning you into a remedy. I’m sorry for thinking the words exiting your mouth could do something other than captivate me."
M.O.W, I’m sorry for thinking that love could heal me (via imwritingpoems)

"I went to the woods because I
wanted to live deliberately…
I wanted to live deep and suck
out all the marrow of life!
To put to rout all that was not life…
And not, when I came to die, discover
that I had not lived…"
