We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.

I keep drinking the ink from my pen,
And I’m balancing history books up on my head,
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase;
‘If you love something, give it away.’

They breathe each others air until their lungs get tired.
It creates a melody
That gently kisses everything
