    Hold fast to dreams, For if dreams die, Life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly, Hold fast to dreams, For if dreams go, Life is a barren field, Frozen with snow.

    "Dear child, I only did to you what the sparrow
    did to you; I am old when it is fashionable to be
    young; I cry when it is fashionable to laugh.
    I hated you when it would have taken less courage
    to love."


    Charles Bukowski

    Ten Rules for Being Human


    1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.
    2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”
    3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”
    4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.
    5. Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.
    6. “There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”
    7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.
    8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.
    9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
    10. You will forget all this.

    Reading is an act of resistance in a landscape of distraction…. It requires us to pace ourselves. It returns us to a reckoning with time. In the midst of a book, we have no choice but to be patient, to take each thing in its moment, to let the narrative prevail. We regain the world by withdrawing from it just a little, by stepping back from the noise.
    ~David L. Ulin

    "There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul."

    "I've seen daddy's hands break open and bleed
    an' I've seen him work 'til he's stiff as a board
    an' I've seen momma lying in suffer and sickness.
    In need of a doctor we couldn't afford.
    Anything at all was more than we had.
    In the good old days
    When times were bad."

    They say it fades if you let it
    Love was made to forget it
    I carved your name across my eyelids
    You pray for rain, I pray for blindness

    If you still want me, please forgive me
    The crown of love has fallen from me
    If you still want me, please forgive me
    Because the spark is not within me
