It's urgent

"It's urgent-love.
It's urgent- a boat upon the sea.

It's urgent to destroy certain words,
hate, solitude, and cruelty,
some mornings,
many swords.

It's urgent to invent a joyfulness,
multiply kisses and cornfields,
discover roses and rivers
and glistening mornings- it's urgent.

Silence and an impure light fall upon our shoulders till they ache.
It's urgent- love, it's urgent
to endure." 

 Eugénio de Andrade

I wonder

 if your home is where your heart is,
where is your home when you don't find your heart?

Life lately

'Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.
 Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them.
 And the point is, to live everything. 
Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.' 

 Rainer Maria Rilke

Thinking about this

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." 

Marilyn Monroe

On being in love

'since feeling is first 
who pays any attention 
to the syntax of things
            will never wholly kiss you
my blood approves,
kisses are a far better fate than wisdom'
