Sonetul CXVI

de William Shakespeare

"Unirea sufletelor mari nu are
Hotar, iubirea nu-i iubire dacă
Se schimbă cînd întîmpină schimbare
Sau cînd se pleacă celui care pleacă.

O, nu ! Iubirea-i far aprins oricînd,
Furtunile şi bezna să le-nfrunte ;
Stea navelor ce rătăcesc, purtînd
Comori ce nu se ştiu sub-nalta punte.

Ea nu-i nebunul timpului, chiar dacă
Obraji şi buze roşii-i cad sub coasă.
Prin vreme trece fără ca să treacă,
Oricît i-ar fi ursita de tăioasă.

De nu-i aşa şi totu-i născocire,
Nicicînd n-am scris, nicicînd n-a fost iubire!"

Happy to play my part

I’m just stuck. And there is all this pressure cause everyone is hovering around me waiting for me to do something. Or say something, or flip out, or yell and cry some more and I’m happy to play my part. I’m happy to say the lines and do whatever it is that I’m supposed to be doing if it will make everyone feel more comfortable. But I don’t- I don’t know how to do this. I don’t know how to be this person. I don’t- I don’t know who this person is.

Fresh starts

« Fresh starts. Thanks to the calendar they happen every year. Just set your watch to January, our reward for surviving the holiday season. Bringing on the great tradition of new years resolutions, put your past behind you and start over. It’s hard to resist the chance for a new beginning, a chance to put the problems of last year to bed. Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? It’s not on the calendar, it’s not a birthday, it’s not a new year. It’s an event, big or small, something that changes us. Ideally, that gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, a way of letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it’s also important to remember that, amid all the crap, there are a few things worth holding on to. »
- Meredith Grey

« Never lie to the girl of your life for the hoe of the night. » J. Cole
