Be passionate about what you write, believe in your ability to convey timeless ideas, and let no one tell you what what you’re capable of.

Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That’s what it is: an edge; a razor. It draws up through the center of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.
No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.
