"Self love is the very first romance"
"I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know that there’s nothing but light when I see you."
"I’m not sure which is worse: intense feeling, or the absence of it."
"You are full of galaxies and complexities and contradictions and that makes you a universe within yourself."
"Your handwriting. The way you walk. Which china pattern you choose. It’s all giving you away. Everything you do shows your hand. Everything is a self portrait. Everything is a diary."
"To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it."
