what is real.


"From here on out, I am only interested in what is real. Real people, real feelings, that's it, that's all I'm interested in." -Russell Hammond, Almost Famous
"Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons, you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready." -Nayyirah Waheed
"We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone- but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy." -Walter Anderson
"When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women." - Archbishop Fulton Sheen
"If God sets out to make you an unusual Christian, He is not likely to be as gentle as He is usually pictured by the popular teachers. A sculptor does not use a manicure set to reduce the rude, unshapely marble to a thing of beauty. The saw, the hammer, and the chisel are cruel tools, but without them the rough stone must remain forever formless and unbeautiful." -A.W. Tozer

"The fact that you are willing to say, 'I do not understand, and it is fine,' is the greatest understanding you could exhibit." -Wayne Dyer

"Part of the problem with the word 'disabilities' is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities." -Fred Rogers

"If you're afraid to write it, it's a good sign. I suppose you know you're writing the truth when you're terrified." -Yrsa Daley-Ward
