Mr. Never Miss a Beat and Ms. Eagle Eye

"That cross inmate of your household, who has hitherto made life a burden to you, and who has been the Juggernaut car to crush your soul into the dust, may henceforth be a glorious chariot to carry you to the heights of heavenly patience and long-suffering." ~ Hannah Whitall Smith

Does Hayden Know What’s Not In Her Box?

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, 'I'd like my crayons back, please.” ― Hugh MacLeod

Hearts Designed In Appointed Embrace

“It is never ridicule, but a compliment, that knocks a philosopher off his feet. He is already positioned for every possible counter-attack, counter-argument, and retort...only to find a big bear hug coming his way.” ― Criss Jami

Unchained Feather Pillows

“Before she could stop her hands, they reached for him, as though they existed for no other reason than to touch him. Her fingers brushed across his jaw with a feather's caress before pulling away, and he closed his eyes on a soft inhale. Like the poison toying with its remedy, Shahrzad's hands ignored her and took control, a mere taste of his skin not nearly enough. Never enough.” ― Renee Ahdieh

Crossing The Linguistic Bridge

“I'll figure out how to be truer: to let people go if they need to be let go of, and to hold on tight if that's what's called for. I will pay attention, so I can cross each human heart that comes across my path, cross it as true as I can.” ― Laura Pritchett

Broadcasting Private Theatre Sessions

“Channelling is your higher self streaming through in a version your limited mind can accept. There is no such thing as a separate entity, only the perception of it. You are all of it!” ― Erin Fall Haskell

The Ecstasy of Gil and Molly

“This wise old whiskery fish swims up to three young fish and goes, 'Morning, boys, how's the water?' and swims away; and the three young fish watch him swim away and look at each other and go, 'What the fuck is water?' and swim away.” ― David Foster Wallace

Choosing Weightless Peace

“For a minute, I can feel it: the sense of peace as my mind goes quiet, like I'm already dead. I am weightless and free. Nothing and no one to fear, not even myself.” ― Jennifer Niven

The Concrete Faith of Love’s Square Roots

“Maybe your country is only a place you make up in your own mind. Something you dream about and sing about. Maybe it's not a place on the map at all, but just a story full of people you meet and places you visit, full of books and films you've been to. I'm not afraid of being homesick and having no language to live in. I don't have to be like anyone else. I'm walking on the wall and nobody can stop me.” ― Hugo Hamilton

Slowing to Deers and Dots

“Tell me again was it love at first sight When I walked by and you caught my eye. Didn't you know love could shine this bright? Well, smile because you're the deer in the headlights.” ― Owl City

The Composition of Love in Space

"Brahma was excessively sparing with earth, water, and fire... The reckless expenditure of air and ether in his composition was amazing. And, in consequence, he perpetually struggled to outreach the wind, to outrun space itself. Other animals ran only when they had a reason, but the Horse would run for no reason whatever, as if to run out of his own skin." ~Rabindranath Tagore

Sparkling Wings

"When I look at myself in the mirror, I see a unicorn. A badass unicorn." ~ Unknown
