I am...

<3
i love to help people. i really do. when i receive a message, my stomach does that excited-jump thing, and i cant believe how lucky i am to have the opportunity to correspond with someone in need. please, if you hurt, if youre confused, if youre afraid, if youre torn, if you dont even know what you are, but youre something you dont want to be, or be alone in, please contact me. because i love people, and i love you, and i want to help you.

Quotes

for what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but lose his own soul?

***

there is nothing quite like the pain of hurting something innocent.

if we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, then all possibility of life is destroyed – Leo Tolstoy

Sad; so sad, those smoky-rose, smoky-mauve evenings of late autumn, sad enough to pierce the heart. The sun departs the sky in winding sheets of gaudy cloud; anguish enters the city, a sense of bitterest regret, a nostalgia for things we never knew, anguish of the turn of the year, the time of impotent yearning, the inconsolable season.

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.
-St.Thomas Aguinas

beauty is a form of Genius–is higher, indeed, than Genius, as it needs no explanation. it is one of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in the dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. it cannot be questioned. it has divine right of sovereignty. it makes princes of those who have it.
-oscar wilde

Ennui has made more gamblers than avarice, more drunkards than thirst, and perhaps as many suicides as despair.
-Prince Siddharta

life is only valuable as an aesthetic phenomenon
-Nietzsche

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
-Maya Angelou

but beauty, real beauty, ends where an intellectual expression begins. intellect is in itself a mode of exaggeration, and destroys the harmony of any face
-the picture of dorian gray

Oh the glory when you ran outside
With your shirt tucked in and your shoes untied
And you told me not to follow you
-Sufjan Stevens

Beauty, more than bitterness, makes the heart break.
-Sara Teasdale
