“Love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness. The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.” —Paulo Coelho, “By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept” (via jaeboogie)
O man! Take heed!
“O man! Take heed!What saith deep midnight’s voice indeed?I slept my sleep—From deepest dream I’ve woke and plead:—The world is deep,And deeper than the day could read.Deep is its woe—Joy—deeper still than grief can be:Woe saith: Hence! Go!But joys all want eternity—Want deep profound eternity!”
Zarathustra’s Roundelay -Friedrich Nietzsche (translated by Thomas Common)
