For every poet it is always morning in the world. History a forgotten, insomniac night; History and elemental awe are always our early beginning, because the fate of poetry is to fall in love with the world, in spite of History.
— Derek Walcott, in his 1992 acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize in Literature (via seabois)
Be kind to yourself while blooming. I know sometimes it feels like your soul doesn’t always fit. It’s all a part of the process.
— Emery Allen (via silentnostalgia)
One day, you’ll just be a memory to some people. Do your best to be a good one.
