The pleasures of love are always in proportion to our fears

vanity is as ill at ease under indifference as tenderness is under a love which it cannot return

There is, in lovers, a certain infatuation of egotism they will have a witness of their happiness, cost that witness what it may

The task of reclaiming a bad man is extremely seductive to good women

If you don’t go out in the woods
nothing will ever happen
and your life will never begin.

Adam and Eve were not expelled
from the Garden of Eden.
They jumped the fenceo

There are windows
that you can look through
either way
and be inside or out
by making a choice.

Seven layers above the horizon
there are ships that sail
forever out of sight
never looking back
never seeing the foam in their wake
strings of pearls hanging from their mast¸

You work too hard.
You drink too much
and the genie is still in the lamp.
There are ripe berries
on magic bushes
and a tree out there
you haven't climbed yet~

Breathe! Breathe deeply!
Breathe as if it were your first breath!
Drink in the air
with the fullness of your being
and feel the thirst that it satisfies.i
