You have witchcraft in your lips.
Wasn’t that the definition of home? Not where you are from, but where you are wanted.
Abraham Verghese, Cutting of the Stone
There is no designated time for anything in your life. You don’t have to have your first kiss at any certain time, you don’t have to get married in your 20s and you don’t have to do anything just because other people think it’s best. In fact, you will be much better off if you just do what your heart says. The day you stop caring what other people think is the day their opinions don’t mean anything, because you’re not there to give them weight.

I wondered at how peaceful it might be not to be pestered by that childish voice that wants for pleasure and attention. I wondered what it would be like not to live in a house of mirrors, everywhere I go being reminded of myself.
Every morning when we wake up, we have twenty four brand-new hours to live. What a precious gift!
I’m tired, can’t think of anything and want only to lay my face in your lap, feel your hand on my head and remain like that through all eternity.
In case you ever foolishly forget; I am never not thinking of you.
