Nothing will tell you where you are. Each moment is a place you’ve never been.
I love unmade beds. I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest in that moment. I love the look in people’s eyes when they realize they’re in love. I love the way people look when they first wake up and they’ve forgotten their surroundings. I love the gasp people take when their favorite character dies. I love when people close their eyes and drift to somewhere in the clouds. I fall in love with people and their honest moments all the time. I fall in love with their breakdowns and their smeared makeup and their daydreams. Honesty is just too beautiful to ever put into words.
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
Every writer “creates” his own precursors. His work modifies our conception of the past, as it will modify the future.
Tell me again: it is so beautiful that I never tire of hearing. Repeat me again that the couple of the story was happy to death, that she was not unfaithful, that he did not even came to deceive her. And do not forget that, despite the time and trouble, they were still kissing each night.
Tell me a thousand times, please: is the most beautiful story I know.
