"Yet another best pal moving on my imaginary ex.""Two kisses, my first year at Yale, after we ran into each other at a party and he walked me back to the dorm. It was nice. Very nice.

It must be like still being a student, with an essay to do after a week's drinking, only you haven't had the drinking. Quite clearly, to me, you aren't a voluntary worker, from the will: you do it by intuitive flashes, more like an act of creation, & when the flashes don't come, as of course they don't, especially when the excess energy of undergraduate days is gone, then it is a hideous unnatural effort."

My mom hoped i would inherit Perseus's luck. Judging by how my life was going so far, i wasn't too optimistic."
Author: Rick Riordan

46. "Who can tell?Your living is an organized hell.The mansion of your mind just an oversized cell.The pressure, everything is done to a measure.In the sea of competition sunk like a treasure.Like a feather falling slow spiraling to the floor.Strung up like a broken violin to your course.Opportunity is knocking at your door,But you never left a welcome mat (It doesn't matter anymore.).Or anyhow, but you're too late to turn back.Fate pushing you into the wall like a thumbtack.Ain't no comebacks in this game of life.Roll the dice again,Roll it once, never twice.Keep on going, and taste the stars.Keep on growing, and raise the bar.You're living life for the As down to the Zs,After one drop you got a fountain to seize.Wanna break from the world, but the world wanna break you,The weight makes your backbone curl up and make you."

Yellowpulls across the hills and thrums, or in the silence after lightning before it says its names-and then the clouds' wide-mouthed apologies. You were aimed from birth: you will never be alone. Rain will come, a gutter filled, an Amazon, long aisles-you never heard so deep a sound, moss on rock, and years. You turn your head- that's what the silence meant: you're not alone. The whole wide world pours down."
Author: William Stafford
50. "In the language of poetry, where every word is weighed, nothing is usual or normal. Not a single stone and not a single cloud above it. Not a single day and not a single night after it. And above all, not a single existence, not anyone's existence in this world."
Author: Wislawa Szymborska
