"Gold is the symbol of everything shiny and beautiful and it does actually exist on this earth and the way to discover it is firstly get a degree in geology and understand that it can be discovered in lodes. Then you do surveys of the ground and then you go into the ground with machines. You blister your skin and it's agony and you get out this rock and you go into a foundry and into the heat and you blister your skin again and out comes this thing and it's gold. It's unbelievably hard work, and it takes knowledge and understanding, but there it really truly is. But one thing that will never happen is that you close your eyes and wish for gold and some angel leans out from heaven and presents you with a bar. No one will transform tin into gold and no one will make gold from nothing. And that is true of any equivalent of gold.

Beauty, truth, poetry and art do not come from anything other than a foundry of similar proportions, from similar experiences of work and effort. What upsets me are the people who lay claim to a short cut. It sounds rather dreary and Calvinistic but I think that work leads to great things like beauty and extraordinary truth, things that shine and are transcendent. I don't know any other way of getting there."

Part of the problem with the word 'disabilities' is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities.

"The point is that petty, frustrating crap like this is exactly where the work of choosing comes in. Because the traffic jams and crowded aisles and long checkout lines give me time to think, and if I dont make a conscious decision about how to think and what to pay attention to, Im going to be pissed and miserable every time I have to food-shop, because my natural default-setting is the certainty that situations like this are really all about me, about my hungriness and my fatigue and my desire to just get home" - David Foster Wallace

Damaged people love you like you are a crime scene
before a crime has even been committed.
They keep their running shoes besides their souls every night,
one eye open in case things change whilst they sleep.
Their backs are always tense as though waiting
to fight a sudden storm that might engulf them.
 
Because damaged people have already seen hell.

And damaged people understand that every evil demon
that exists down there was once a kind angel before it fell.

Your heart will fix itself.
Its your mind you need to worry about.
Your mind where you locked the memories,
your mind where you have kept pieces of the ones that hurt you,
that still cut through you like shards of glass.

Your mind will keep you up at night, make you cry,
destroy you over and over again.

You need to convince your mind that it has to let go
because your heart already knows how to heal.

This poem can be read in two ways.  Its a powerful reminder of the difficulties many face when attempting to realize their inner beauty.  First read from top down, then bottom up.  O0

ʎʇʇǝɹԀ Ugly

Im very ugly
So dont try to convince me that
I am a very beautiful person
Because at the end of the day
I hate myself in every single way
And Im not going to lie to myself by saying
There is beauty inside of me that matters
So rest assured I will remind myself
That I am a worthless, terrible person
And nothing you say will make me believe
I still deserve love
Because no matter what
I am not good enough to be loved
And I am in no position to believe that
Beauty does exist within me
Because whenever I look in the mirror I always think
Am I as ugly as people say?
