Some things are more beautiful because they don’t belong to anyone or anything.
We all have a room within us, in which we keep the things we have loved deeply, intensely, passionately, but lost forever. My room is full of you. Just you.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
My brain hums with scraps of poetry and madness.
For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
A few times in my life, I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few, brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel, rather than think… I could never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I’ve lived my life on these moments, they pull me back to the present and I realise that everything is exactly the way it’s meant to be.

To love means to open ourselves to the negative as well as the positive – to grief, sorrow, and disappointment as well as to joy, fulfilment, and an intensity of consciousness we did not know was possible before.
