WORDS TO LIVE BY:
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
In a remote and deserted landscape, a baby’s cradle, left behind by Syrian Kurdish refugees, lies at the Turkish-Syrian border near the southeastern town of Suruc in Sanliurfa province. More than 150,000 Syrian Kurds have fled to Turkey since the frontier opened to escape the advances of Islamic State militants, who have seized villages and beheaded residents as they push towards the strategic border town Kobani.

"Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself."
"To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too."
"The anticipation of something is often more beautiful than actually having it, but this is usually true for people who do not appreciate their conquests."
Arthur Rimbaud (1854 - 1891)
One of the most famous french poet. He wrote the biggest part of his work between 16 and 20 years old and then gave up because he understood he would never be able to write a poetry as perfect as he wanted. He also is famous for his troubled affair with another famous french poet called Paul Verlaine. He stopped completely poetry before his 21 birthday and spent the rest of his life travelling in Europe, Asia and Africa.
He was a genius. His poetry is magnificent. Do yourself a favour and go read his work.
"I could start fires with what I feel for you."
