“This is what one thirsts for, I realize,
after the smallness of the day, of work,
of details, of intimacy – even of communication,
one thirsts for the magnitude and universality
of a night full of stars, pouring into one like a fresh tide.”
“A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful,
full of wonder and excitement.
It is our misfortune that for most of us,
that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct
for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring,
is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood.”
“In the same way that we feed our bodies three times a day,
we should feed our spirit.
Just as we would never consider running our car without gas,
we should not consider running our lives
without the power of the Divine.”
“There is no statute of limitations on starting over.
Re-invent yourself every day.
Be the girl who walks barefoot and listens to the blues.
Tomorrow, wear a trench coat and speak fierce truths.
Be a phoenix. Be ashes. Burn down. Resurrect.
Let go of the idea that you must always be who you have always been.”
