Bloodflood pt.II


'It's the best possible time of being alive, when almost everything you thought you knew was wrong.'

'When it feels scary to jump, that's exactly when you jump. Otherwise, you end up staying at the same place for the rest of your life.'

'Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.'

'I feel sorry for the people who never go mad.'

'Everything that's worth it has a price. Life is ment to be a challenge, because challenges are what make you grow.'

'The way to know life is to love many things.'

'Love is the bridge between you and everything.'

'The wound is the place where light enters you.'

'The voice of beauty speaks softly; it creeps only into the most fully awakened souls.'
'To live is to suffer. To survive is to find meaning in the suffering.'
'You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.'

'Always go too far because that's where you'll find the truth.'

'If we wait until we're ready, we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives.'
'The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want.'
'The only problem with seeing too much is that it makes you insane.'
'Fear is not your enemy. It is a compass pointing you to the areas where you need to grow.'

'All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.'

'Read books. Care about things. Get excited. Try not to be too down on yourself. Enjoy the ever-present game of knowing.'

'Drink too much coffee, wear lipstick that’s too dark, and never settle for a life you don’t want.'

'For what it's worth: it's never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strenght to start over.'

'Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.'

'Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.'

'What is normal? Normal is only ordinary; mediocre. Life belongs to the rare, exceptional individual who dares to be different.'

'Go to a coffee shop. Sit by the bar with the glass windows and look out. Look at all the people running to catch a train. All the girls with one too many shopping bags. All the couples too in love to care. Then you’ll see it - a bit of yourself in everyone. And somehow, sitting alone in a coffee shop had never felt so good.'

'Sometimes it feels as if the world is crumbling, but underneath the mess is a new beginning.'

'The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.'

'Life becomes more meaningful when you realize the simple fact that you’ll never get the same moment twice.'


'Your twenties are a time of exploration, not certainty. Get out and try, dont sit at home thinking you should already know.'

'I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying "Kiss me harder" and "You're a good person" and "You brighten my day". I live my life as straigh-forward as possible. Because, one day I might get hit by a bus. Maybe it's weird. Maybe it's scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be- to just let people know you want them, you need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you don't see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether it's your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tounge in their mouth, or your heart in their hands. And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care. We are young and we are human, and we are beautiful and we are not in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans. We never know when the bus is coming.'


'I think it's really important to have courage to try.'

'Maybe because the people like us, see in higher colors, and believe in dreams so big. Reality doesn’t seem reachable. Maybe the people like us are spontaneous, but strategic. People like us have learned to live, by survival. Because people like us, have been given a blessing and a curse. And people like us have seen the darkest of pain, but felt the overwhelming feeling of happiness and love. Maybe people like us have to lose it all before we can begin. And I believe people like us, are meant to create something beautiful.'
