THE GEM 13 NOV 217 : “AT SOME POINT IN LIFE THE WORLD’S BEAUTY BECOMES ENOUGH. YOU DON’T NEED TO PHOTOGRAPH, PAINT OR EVEN REMEMBER IT. IT IS ENOUGH. NO RECORD OF IT NEEDS TO BE KEPT AND YOU DON’T NEED SOMEONE TO SHARE IT WITH OR TELL IT TO. WHEN THAT HAPPENS — THAT LETTING GO — YOU LET GO BECAUSE YOU CAN.” ― TONI MORRISON, TAR BABY

“You know how a star is supposed to twinkle? We say twinkle because that is how it looks, but when a star feels itself, it’s not a twinkle, it’s more like a throb. Star throbs. Over and over and over. Like this. Stars just throb and throb and throb and sometimes, when they can’t throb anymore, when they can’t hold it anymore, they fall out of the sky.”

TAR BABY.

THE GEM 12 NOV 2017 : IT IS A NARROW MIND WHICH CANNOT LOOK AT A SUBJECT FROM VARIOUS POINTS OF VIEW.”

George Eliot, Middlemarch

A swing grinds on its chains.
A child sits pushing.
There’s no eucalyptus,
atlas pine, or flowering ash,
no other child is calling
from the tender modulations of leaves:
just each note
of her ringing hear,
the feeling of being pushed
into the air.

the gem 11 nov 2017 : YOU MUST ACT AS IF IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FAIL.

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

THE GEM 10 NOV 2017 : IT IS DIFFICULT TO KNOW AT WHAT MOMENT LOVE BEGINS; IT IS LESS DIFFICULT TO KNOW THAT IT HAS BEGUN.

Hasty and adventurous schemes are at first view flattering, in execution difficult, and in the issue disastrous.

THE GEM 7 NOV 2017 : BAD FRIENDS WILL PREVENT YOU FROM HAVING GOOD FRIENDS.

Gabon proverb

“ That’s the pathetic thing about high school. Everyone tries so hard to be something they aren’t. It’s gotten so I don’t know who I am, so how can I even try to be who I am, much less who I’m not?
My problem is that I don’t even fit in with the misfits.
I don’t fit anywhere.”

― Katie Alender, Bad Girls Don’t Die
