Take what you need and be on your way
I like you but sometimes I get sad talking to you because there is so much about me that you will never really know. There is a world of difference in the love you feel for someone who has seen all the ways in which you break, and the love for someone who hasn’t.

I’d woken up early and I took a long time getting ready to exist.
— Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
Now all you can do is wait. It must be hard for you, but there is a right time for everything. Like the ebb and flow of tides. No one can do anything to change them. When it is time to wait, you must wait.
— Haruki Murakami, The Wind Up Bird Chronicle
You lose it if you talk about it.
— Ernest Hemingway, The Art Of Fiction
