they’ll either want to kill you, kiss you or be you.
haters look small when you’re so high on top
What you don’t like in me, improve it in you.
There is strong shadow where there is much light.
I do not think badly of others when they treat me unkindly. Rather, I feel gratitude towards them for giving me the opportunity to train myself to handle adversity.
Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.
“Don’t ever kid yourself about loving some one. It is just that most people are not lucky enough ever to have it. You never had it before and now you have it. What you have with Maria, whether it lasts just through tomorrow, or whether it lasts for a long life is the most important thing that can happen to a human being. There will always be people who say it does not exist because they cannot have it. But I tell you it is true and that you have it and that you are lucky even if you die tomorrow.”
