"Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors."
— Andrew Boyd (via ecoutters)
"It’s said it takes seven years
to grow completely new skin cells.
To think, this year I will grow
into a body you never will
