- there are far more worthy pursuits than being liked. like being.
- not all knots need to be untied. you are not for everyone, you are for you. how devastating. how gorgeous.
- their fear is not your own. emancipate yourself from their shame. protect your beauty.
- authenticity is an orientation, not a destination. live many lives. each one as true as the last.
- redefine failure as stagnancy, not sinking. perhaps the treasure you were seeking was waiting there all along. beneath your capsized ego.
- perfection is a eugenic ideal. love people for who they are, not what you think they should be.
- no one is coming to rescue you. this is not a tragedy, it’s an opportunity. become the person you were waiting for.
- feeling is dangerous. but what do you call disassociation? better to know the origin of a bruise than not.
- there are words & worlds that don’t exist yet. make them up. few things are more real than fiction.
- design murals for all the miracles. paint them in every conversation. make hope contagious.
- once upon a time someone felt your loneliness. find ancestors. become their living memorial.
