— Lao Tzu (via purplebuddhaproject)
"You must learn her.
You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
And, this is how you keep her.”"
— Junot Diaz- This is How you Lose Her
“You’re always going to want
to climb that mountain,” he warns.
When I close my eyes I see
peaks in the distance,
feel an ache in my feet,
in my thighs.
“It’s challenges you love,
not people,” he informs.
When I reach your summit
I will only stake my claim
If my flag is white
will you be able
to forgive me
