"As mulheres da família sempre
tiveram um jeito quase póstumo
de existir: guardar o lume
em silêncio, comer depois de
servir os outros, morrer primeiro.
Saíam à hora de ponta do destino
para lerem os caminhos perdidos
e coleccionavam a abdicação
em caixinhas de folha, entre bilhetes
Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth. This shows clearly the principle of softness overcoming hardness.

I knew that what was left of me would always love you, but never in quite the same way.

There is no time for love that isn’t miraculous. Get up and leave. Move. Go. Don’t hold on because you think you’ll never find someone else. If you’re even a little bit unsure, leave. Your uncertainty should tell you that at the very least, you need to explore other avenues. And if those roads lead you back, great. If they don’t, great. Wanting to leave is enough reason to go. And believe me, one way or another, you will eventually wind up where you’re supposed to.
