Breaking Plates

"Somebody once asked me if I ever went up to the plate trying to hit a home run. I said, 'Sure, every time." ~ MIckey Mantle

C Y C L O P E A N

“Most people feared the darkness. Some people feared, more wisely, the things within the darkness. Gabriel feared both, and with good reason. He walked anyway. That had always been his way. He had a complicated history with the woodlands of the world. He'd met his share of the Cyclops and the Circes that lurked within. And the world never seemed to run out of monsters.” ― Angela Panayotopulos

Familial Tools of Friendship

“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” –Friedrich Nietzsche

Saya Tidak Takut

“One must realize that war is common, and justice strife, and that all things come to be through strife and are (so) ordained.” ― Heraclitus

First Love, Last Love

“A man is lucky if he is the first love of a woman. A woman is lucky if she is the last love of a man.” ― Charles Dickens

The Ring of Stability

“Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray. He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.” ― Anonymous

Manus Aeternus

“I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24-7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have a feeling that they can’t hide.” ― Rachel Cohn

To Stay or Not To Stay, Well I Say…

“The sea air and society were meant to coax her out of her shell before her season commenced. It didn't quite work that way. Instead, Maddie spent most of those weeks with shells. Collecting them on the beach, sketching them in her notebook, and trying not to think about parties or balls or gentlemen.” ― Tessa Dare

Crawling In Crystal Blue

“The more you try to impress, the more you become depressed, and the more they get tired of your coercion. It doesn't make them love you, instead, they'll see you as a little child, trying to draw a senseless picture on a piece of paper, begging people to look at it and admire it by force. You can persuade someone to look at your face, but you can't persuade them to see the beauty therein.” ― Michael Bassey Johnson

The Indebted Mirror

“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.” ― Marianne Williamson

Removing The Facade & Finding The Sky

“Bad architecture is in the end as much a failure of psychology as of design. It is an example expressed through materials of the same tendencies which in other domains will lead us to marry the wrong people, choose inappropriate jobs and book unsuccessful holidays: the tendency not to understand who we are and what will satisfy us.” ― Alain de Botton

Spoon Freed

“The function of freedom is to free someone else.” ― Toni Morrison

Harvesting Abundant Love

“Before the fruits of prosperity can come, the storms of life need to first bring the required rains of testing, which mixes with the seeds of wisdom to produce a mature harvest.” ― Lincoln Patz

Whistle Blowers

“We were in it together, no matter what was to come, and we would fight for the win. For each other. Until the last whistle blew.” ― Kandi Steiner
