“Come here and stay here. Not because I asked you to, but because there is no other place you’d rather be. Do it because, every other place you were, before here, didn’t have me.”
“What I feel for you can’t be conveyed in phrasal combinations; It either screams out loud or stays painfully silent but I promise — it beats words. It beats worlds. I promise.”
— Katherine Mansfield
“Even when they were just wasting time, they weren’t wasting time. It was as if no time spent together could ever be wasted.” ~ Author Unknown.
“Writers remember everything…especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he’ll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory.”
― Stephen King,
“I don’t give a shit what the world thinks. I was born a bitch, I was born a painter, I was born fucked. But I was happy in my way. You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious. I am; simply I am…You are a shit.”
– Frida Kahlo, from an unsent letter to Diego Rivera
