It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.

The thinker or artist whose better self has fled into his works feels an almost malicious joy when he sees his body and spirit slowly broken into and destroyed by time; it is as if he were in a corner, watching a thief at work on his safe, all the while knowing that it is empty and that all his treasures have been rescued.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All-Too-Human (via miraculousorgan)

Words have so much power– writers have to shape this hefty material with nothing more than this squishy thing in between our ears and that pumpy thing in our chests. Sometimes they don’t even agree with each other. Until now, I still don’t really understand how these strings of letters can evoke images in our minds, some so powerful that it changes lives.

But it’s not always for the better. Sometimes it’s for the worse. I don’t know about other people, but I do believe in blissful ignorance. There are some things that some people are better off not knowing. This erasure of innocence is sometimes painful, scarring even.


Living is hard. Writing is hard. Everything is hard. But don’t pity those who make everything harder for themselves and enjoy the challenge. At least they have direction.

Pity the poor souls who are stuck in that region of unfeeling, uneasy boredom. It’s a lethal tar pit, the endless conjuring of empty dreams. Even walking feels pointless when you’re going around in circles.
