"I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.”
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?" -Marianne Williamson
"I'll never be picture perfect Beyonce. Fly like J-Lo or singing Baby like 'Shanti. I barely comb my hair, yeah, that's on a good day. I don't care what the hood say. I ain't street like Keyshia, ain't never tried to be. And I got soul in my soul but not quite like Mary. Ain't nothing really R&B about me and I say bump what the hood say" @saintrecords

"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.”
“Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are.”
“With you, intimacy colours my voice. Even ‘hello’ sounds like ‘come here’.” -Warsan Shire
"You are too young for the world to break you down.
You are too young to crumble without a roaring sound.
You are too young to be drinking coffee at three in the morning.
You are too young to light and watch a cigarette burning.
So please don't go,
There's still too much that you don't know" -JustBreathe
"There’s no word for loving more
than you should, just the feeling of excess, as if your tongue burst in a rash of red sequins, as if everyone can see your stutter in the air" -Rebecca Hazelton
“You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.”
