but Pain through love is the purifying fire

Giving out Nothing,
and therefore Shrink
until Life is a mere Living Death.”

I Believe that Tomorrow is Another Day
and I Believe in Miracles.”

“Maybe you can afford to wait.
Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow.
Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows,
or three thousand, or ten,
so much time you can bathe in it,
roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers.
So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there’s only today.
And the truth is, you never really know.”
– Lauren Oliver

because they are such Quiet, Lovable, Wise creatures,
