"A Japanese legend says that if you can’t sleep at night it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream."
"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."
"A bouquet of clumsy words: you know that place between sleep and awake where you’re still dreaming but it’s slowly slipping? I wish we could feel like that more often. I also wish I could click my fingers three times and be transported to anywhere I like. I wish that people didn’t always say ‘just wondering’ when you both know there was a real reason behind them asking."
"I’m happy just to float,
Wherever this river flows.
I’m just finding my feet, pounding the street,
Hoping that someday it will come.
And I’ve got to leave, write my own tragedies
Keep my old bridges there to burn.
Leave all doors open, I don’t know if I’ll return.
I’m out on my own.
Heading out on my own.
It’s not the end,
No, it’s just a change.
My world’s gone cold,
And my life’s turned grey.
I need some shelter through my darkest days,
I know I’ll be back someday."

"Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it."
