"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green

Every second,
An hour.
Every minute,
A lifetime.
A blink of an eye,
A satisfied sigh;
A thump of the heart,
A sojourn in time.

Reality's game
Is a mystery;
Tomorrow, the present will be
And yet the sun will still
Set and rise.

You're dehydrated of
Important moments;
Drink up this one like it's the last
You'll ever experience.
Savor it,
Live in it,
Cherish it;

Because you just might
What's next.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
