    “A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled,
    but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.”

    Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.

    Come live with me and be my love, and we will some new pleasures prove,
    of golden sands, and crystal beaches, with silken lines and silver hooks..."

    After thousands of hours talking, 730 days, and many many smiles

    .


    "I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you."



    Your Ken

    “Live life fully while you're here.
    Experience everything.
    Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird.
    Go out and screw up!
    You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process.
    Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”

    Anthony Robbins

    The truth is a snare: you cannot have it, without being caught. You cannot have the truth in such a way that you catch it, but only in such a way that it catches you.”



    Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards



    “To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.”



    “Once you label me, you negate me”





    Soren Kierkegaard
