Tea and Absurdities

When Life is a Many-Splendored thing

We should breathe, dream and lengthen out the hours by the infinity of sensations. So love everything even if it is not exactly real: water and clouds, night and silence, the vast green sea; the formless and multiform water; the place where you shall never be; the lover whom you shall never know; unnatural flowers, odors which make men drunk; the cats that languish upon pianos and sob like women, with hoarse sweet voices! For I think to myself: What does it matter, what does any reality outside of myself matter, if it has helped me to live, to feel that I am, and what I am?

Go out into the woods. Go out where no one can see and pour your heart out to divine mystery. Let mind flow out from mind until silence sublimes. Let thought’s confused insistence slip from tongue and lip until silence settles. Then true prayer awakens.

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

If a guy wants to be with a girl, he will make it happen, no matter what. So trust me when I say if a guy is treating you like he doesn’t give a shit, he genuinely doesn’t give a shit. No exceptions.
