It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought — that is to be educated.
Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.
I just want to pour my soul out on someone and not have to worry about the mess I’ve made.
I have lived
in my body
and still need
maps and lights
to find my way
to how I feel.
A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.
