“I dare you to stay,
to hang up your walking shoes
and rest here awhile.”
— Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson
since the thing perhaps is
to eat flowers and not to be afraid.
—e.e. cummings (via observando)
There is no person in the world who is made to handle every punch that’s thrown at them. We aren’t made that way. In fact, we’re made to get mad, upset, sad, be hurt, stumble and fall. We aren’t supposed to be able to handle everything. But that’s what makes us stronger in the end, by learning from the things that hurt us most.
I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendos
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.
—Wallace Stevens (via observando)
