Thinking Things

"The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach."  -Benjamin Mays 
"In the same turn, she was both wonderful and terrifying.  She saw things interestingly, is all I can say about her.  She spoke of her mere conversations with intensity and importance.  She shared her most mundane thoughts and they somehow became profoundly enlightening as soon as they hit the air, ideas I had never cared to listen to until she spoke them.  She looked at people and she so felt them- their emotions, their feelings- that you got the sense that she carried the whole world around with her the way few people in the universe ever have.  And what struck me the most about her was that she came from such a void, such an emptiness, a family and a youth that provided her virtually no real footing, and she created all that love herself." -R. Costerelli, Shorter and Shorter Stories
"I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times, in life after life, in age after age forever." -Rabindranath Tagore
