I'll learn how to swim.

R. L.

Nothing’s wrong. But there’s always suffering, Pudge. Homework or malaria or having a boyfriend who lives far away when there’s a good-looking boy lying next to you. Suffering is universal. It’s the one thing Buddhists, Christians and Muslims are all worried about.

—Looking for Alaska - John Green

As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.

—John Green

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Just waiting.

Just waiting.

I don’t wanna dance with you, baby, no more.
I’ll never do something to hurt you, though.
