words to live by, zooey edition"Don't let someone steal your tenderness.Don't allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart.Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to be affected by things. Whether it's a song,a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all -look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude.Give it and feel love."- Zooey DeschanelBeautiful words from a beautiful heart.
Your Feet by Pablo Neruda"When I cannot look at your faceI look at your feet.Your feet of arched bone,your hard little feet.I know that they support you,and that your sweet weightrises upon them.Your waist and your breasts,the doubled purpleof your nipples,the sockets of your eyesthat have just flown awayyour wide fruit mouth,your red tresses,my little tower.But I love your feetonly because they walkedupon the earth and uponthe wind and upon the waters,until they found me."- from The Captain's Verses
