  You are so good. So good, you're always feeling so much. And sometimes it feels like you're gonna bust wide open from all the feeling, don't it? People like you are the best in the world, but you sure do suffer for it.  | Silas House


Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground. | Rumi


For our hearts are not pure; our hearts are filled with need and greed as much as with love and grace; and we wrestle with our hearts all the time. The wrestling is who we are. How we wrestle is who we are. What we want to be is never what we are. Not yet. Maybe that's why we have these relentless engines in our chests, driving us toward what we might be.  | Brian Doyle


The moment you feel like you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment to absolutely and utterly walk away. | Alysia Harris


You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body 

love what it loves. | Mary Oliver


The truth is like a lion. You don't have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself. | St. Augustine
