I have just come across this beautiful piece of writing by Nayyirah Waheed. I was going to include it in the previous quote collection, but I liked it so much that I thought better about it, and decided it deserved its own journal entry. It is a good reminder not to settle. This goes beyond reminding myself not to suffer because of unrequited love. This reminds me not to settle. 

Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons you must leave. Because you never have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is love that will be ready.

I think this quotes set is from c.2002. I am very slowly making progress with my project of transcribing all my writing and getting rid of a lot of paper. 
By the way, right now I am transcribing a lot of poetry from the Memories Nocturnal collection. I hope to find something worth posting from that time. :) 

Love
"El amor nace del recuerdo, vive de la inteligencia y muere por olvido." -R. Lull
"Al amor, como a una cerámica, cuando se rompe, aunque se reconstruya, se le conocen las marcas." -Proverbio Griego
"El amor hace pasar el tiempo, y el tiempo hace pasar el amor." -Anónimo
"Look, magic and romance ignite a relationship, but it's the friendship that makes it endure. It's the friendship that turns that happily ever after into the beginning of a love story and not the ending. The beginnig is the exciting part, but it's the rest of the story that is the true part."  -Merry Krissmas Movie (Hallmark)


Art and Poetry
"El arte no reproduce lo visible, sino que hace visible lo que no siempre lo es." -Paul Klee
"El objetivo final del arte es mostrar los tedijos internos del alma." -Manuel Viola
"La pintura es poesía muda, la poesía es pintura ciega." -Leonardo DaVinci
"Una pintura es un poema sin palabras." -Horacio
"La poesía se escribe cuando ella quiere." -José Hierro
"Uno escribe a base de ser minero de uno mismo." -José Luis Sampedro
"La poesía es el sentimiento que le sobra al corazón y te sale por la mano." -Carmen Conde

Life, Character and Humour
"El talento se cultiva en la soledad; el carácter se forma en las tempestades oleadas del mundo." -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"Hemos de saber anticiparnos a encontrar lo cómico que haya en nosotros. Así podremos evitar que los otros se burlen de nuestra escasa perfección." - Noel Clarasó
"Las personas más insoportables son los hombres que se creen geniales, y las mujeres que se creen irresistibles." -Anónimo
"Cuando no sopla el viento, aún la veleta tiene carácter." -Stanislaw Jercy Lec
"Procuro ser siempre muy puntual, pues he observado que los defectos de una persona se reflejan muy vivamente en la memoria de quien le espera." -Nicholas Boileau-Despréaux
"A mistake isn't actually a failure unless you don't learn from it, and unless you don't grow" -Tracy McMillan

Hope
"Every cloud has a silver lining."

I haven't had much time today at ALL- I've been playing cards with friends all day, and was up all night last night playing cards, and I'm fall-asleep-sitting-up-tired, but I want to say:

No matter what ambitions, hopes, dreams, or disappointments or heartbreaks today has been for you, I hope that you've grasped it and made it the most possible within your power. I hope that you've been able to seize this Valentine's Day by the reigns to make it a wonderful day for yourself. :)
