1. "I want to be rich in all the foods I’ve tasted and all the places I’ve been and all the people I’ve kissed."

  2. "I said: “A tiger does not proclaim his tigritude, he pounces”. In other words: a tiger does not stand in the forest and say: “I am a tiger”. When you pass where the tiger has walked before, you see the skeleton of the duiker, you know that some tigritude has been emanated there."

    Wole Soyinka.

    Eighty years on earth and still roaring like a lion. Bless him.

  3. "Congratulations, you were the
    one to love less. Here is your
    reward: a trophy of a heart with
    a hand over its mouth and a
    lifetime of regret. Display it with
    pride; it couldn’t have been easy
    to bite your tongue so often."

  4. "You’re disappointed when you
    don’t become all at once. You
    want to be the Big Bang, you
    want to be the perfect you now
    so that you can get on with living.
    Growing is a chore, but trees don’t
    get their rings by exploding out of
    the ground all haphazard and
    towering. People are mayflies, the
    truth is our whole lives are about
    becoming and once we have
    become it’s just about over. Don’t
    throw away the years in the dirt;
    everything extravagant has
    started out small."

    "We’re the Eco Adventure Club! Everyday we go on an adventure to learn about plants and animals in the city. Today is our eleventh adventure.

  10. "Have you felt it too? Have you seen how your best friends love everything about you- except the things that count? And your most important is nothing to them; nothing, not even a sound they can recognize."

  12. Damn I feel like Rip Van Winkle…I chose the wrong match to miss.


  13. "When the time comes for you to make a change, to grow, to do your life in a different way, the universe will make you so uncomfortable, so unhappy, you will eventually have no choice. If you insist on staying in a place you no longer belong in, if you do not grow the courage to do what is necessary to propel yourself forward, you will suffer the consequences, whatever they may be."

  14. "You need not be a selfless child, or a woman giving to the point of self-annihilation."

  15. "Let people feel the weight of who you are and let them deal with it."
