The only darkness we should allow into our lives is the night, and even then, we have the moon.

I hid my deepest feelings so well I forgot where I placed them.

I fall in love with people’s passion. The way their eyes light up when they talk about the thing they love and the way they fill with light.

I think when you spend enough time when it’s quiet around you and you don’t open your mouth for three or four days, there’s parts of your brain that can kind of rest. I think when we’re out in the world and we have to talk to people, we edit ourselves. You know, we have to like, act a little bit. As honest as we may be as humans, when we’re out here, we’re all kind of wearing mirrors on our faces. You know, constantly reacting to how to react to the people around you. And I think when you’re alone for a long enough time, you can feel a lot more peace.
