life isn't just fun and games, but it should be.

never love a wild thing. quit your job, get a tan, buy a ticket, fall in love, never return. every question you ask me can be found in a book or a song. trends change, fatigue fades, memories last forever. you must do what you think you cannot do. your name burns when I write it, feels heavy when I say it out loud. we wanted mercy and you gave us knowledge. how do you make love stay? sonnet 154.

I’ve pursued dreams and achieved them, but I don’t think anybody should think their life is incomplete if they don’t follow some dream. Happiness doesn’t come from achievements, or money, or any sort of treasure. Happiness is a frame of mind, not a destination. It’s appreciating what you’ve got and building relationships with those around you.

Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.

A lot of the conflict you have in your life exists simply because you’re not living in alignment; you’re not be being true to yourself.

The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world.

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.’
