(via bbijoue)

a friend told me

A lover is he who is chill in hell fire;
A knower is he who is dry in the sea

Kindle the fire of love and burn away all things,
Then set thy foot into the land of the lovers.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
