“Healing is an art. It takes time, it takes practice. It takes love.”
"I’d like to add some beauty to life," said Anne dreamily. "I don’t exactly want to make people know more… though I know that is the noblest ambition… but I’d love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me… to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn’t been born.”
Anne of Avonlea

"Sometimes, however, this sense of isolation, like acid spilling out of a bottle, can unconsciously eat away at a person’s heart and dissolve it. You could see it, too, as a kind of double-edged sword. It protects me, but at the same time steadily cuts away at me from the inside.”

"If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that—warm things, kind things, sweet things."

“If you have everything, then you don’t want to go on. It’s the lacking that makes you search for something better. For me, habit is just a synonym for death. I am pretty much melancholic but I guess, my only ambition is to be true every moment I am living.”

— Juliette Binoche

"Bones break. Organs burst. Flesh tears. We can sew the flesh, repair the damage, ease the pain. But when life breaks down - when we break down, there’s no science. No hard and fast rules. We just have to feel our way through."

“I’ve come to realise that glory, bliss, and beauty are meaningless without first being earned through suffering. My heart is wine-red and tender following it’s latest pummelling but I’m more determined than ever to love harder, to breathe harder, to howl harder, to dance in flames.”
— Of Roses, Of Skin

“There are three things I want you to learn how to say.
One. “I love you” and don’t just say it as an empty phrase,say it with feeling,say it to every person who comes to mind when you think of those three little words.I know it’s scary, I know it’s difficult, but open yourself upand shout it.Don’t mumble,don’t say it under your breath,when you love someone,whether platonically or romantically,it deserves to be shouted from every rooftop.
Two.“Goodbye”There will be some people in your life that come in and just wreck everything,they mess up your plans,they hurt you,and make you feel less than what you are,so please learn how to say goodbye to them.But I also want you to learn how to say goodbyeto even the people you want to stay.not everyone stays, and saying goodbye is like setting someone free,and it won’t always come easy,and it won’t always come without heartbreak,but not everyone stays,and it will do you a world of good to learn how to tell them goodbye.
Three. “I am worth it.”there will be waves of sorrow in your life,and you will feel as if you were the sand that the tide carries away,you will feel as if it carries away your worthit will feel like you are the left over rubble of a buildingthat had been burned down,and you will feel less,but please learn to say these words.say them in the mirror when you have just woken up,say them when your lover turns their back on you,say them when you are opening up the refrigeratorsing them,yell them,whisper them,and please, believe them.You are more than sand that can just be washed away,and you are more than just a few pieces of broken cement,please,you are worth it.”

There are three things I want you to learn how to say.

One. 
“I love you” 
and don’t just say it as an empty phrase,
say it with feeling,
say it to every person who comes to mind when you think of those three little words.
I know it’s scary, 
I know it’s difficult, 
but open yourself up
and shout it.
Don’t mumble,
don’t say it under your breath,
when you love someone,
whether platonically or romantically,
it deserves to be shouted from every rooftop.

Two.
“Goodbye”
There will be some people in your life 
that come in and just wreck everything,
they mess up your plans,
they hurt you,
and make you feel less than what you are,
so please learn how to say goodbye to them.
But I also want you to learn how to say goodbye
to even the people you want to stay.
not everyone stays, 
and saying goodbye is like setting someone free,
and it won’t always come easy,
and it won’t always come without heartbreak,
but not everyone stays,
and it will do you a world of good to learn how to tell them 
goodbye.

Three. 
“I am worth it.”
there will be waves of sorrow in your life,
and you will feel as if you were the sand that the tide carries away,
you will feel as if it carries away your worth
it will feel like you are the left over rubble of a building
that had been burned down,
and you will feel less,
but please learn to say these words.
say them in the mirror when you have just woken up,
say them when your lover turns their back on you,
say them when you are opening up the refrigerator
sing them,
yell them,
whisper them,
and please, believe them.
You are more than sand that can just be washed away,
and you are more than just a few pieces of broken cement,
please,
you are worth it.”
