To me, there is no greater act of courage than being the one who kisses first.
Every great mistake has a halfway moment, a split second when it can be recalled and perhaps remedied.
I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights sleep, worked too long and too hard in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I’ve lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment.
Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.
Empathy is like a universal solvent. Any problem immersed in empathy becomes soluble.
I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.
