Leaving my planet for yours
Leaving my planet for yours

"You don't fall in love like you fall in a hole. You fall like falling through space. It's like you jump off your own private planet to visit someone else's planet. Away you go, falling into someone else's orbit...and after a while you might decide to pull your two planets together and call it home." - Jeanette Winterson

"Get a life in which you are generous. Look around at the azaleas making fuchsia star bursts in spring; look at a full moon hanging silver in a black sky on a cold night. And realize that life is glorious, and that you have no business taking it for granted. Care so deeply about its goodness that you want to spread it around. All of us want to do well. But if we do not do good, too, then doing well will never be enough." - Anna Quindlen

The Journey
The Journey

"It's like in the great stories, Mr Frodo. The ones that really mattered, full of darkness and danger they were. Sometimes you didn't want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when there's so much bad that had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing, this shadow; even darkness must pass." - Samwise Gamgee
