simple being

"Sometimes it is necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness." -Galway Kinnel

"As I have become one I have discovered funny and discouraging things about adults: they replace their desire to grow internally with a desire to advance in external matters; they become complacent with work, family, and relationships and then when it's convenient they call it 'happiness'; they detach from other people because prior experiences have hurt them and then wonder why they are alone and lost- and then they complain to each other about the ugliness of a life which was their responsibility to make beautiful."
"Complete possession is proved only by giving.  All you are unable to give possesses you." - Andre Gide
