So a wise friend once told me that short stories held little gems of truth within the few pages that comprised them. Unlike novels or books of great capacity, short stories refrained from attempting to convey the big picture in exchange for a small glimmer of truth that captured the very meaning of a moment. In trying to live from moment to moment, sometimes a sentence, paragraph, fragment, or saying captures your feelings so completely that you cannot help but feel as if part of life’s mysteries were explained. Yeah, maybe this just sounds like a lot of highfalutin, cheesy crap, but that’s alright, because that’s what I believe in. I’ll try to offer an explanation behind the significance of each quote, but it’ll take some time, and I’ll probably add more stuff as the significance grows.

“Come, come, whoever you are, Wanderer, idolater, worshiper of fire, Come even though you have broken your vows a thousand times, Come, and come yet again. Ours is not a caravan of despair.”

~Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

“Live the Fourth”


“Would there be hope someday
Or would his spark slowly fade
This the boy who would smile
When his heart was in pain
And his simple mind
Would be settled in grace
When he knelt down and spoke
To his father in his grave”

~Xavier Rudd (Jack)

“We’re only human.”

~Fr. Joe

“Over Everything Love”

“The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire.”

~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

“People need to learn that there is a pulse in this city. And that pulse had color. We need people to see that.”


“Lord, I know not what tomorrow brings, but your love rises before the sun.”


“On ne voit bien qu’avec le coeur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.”

~Le Renard

“Dare to Dream”


“Y por vos e de morir.”

~Amor de mi Alma

“O stay your soul and leave my heart its song! O stay your hand; the journey may be long! And when we part, and sorrow can’t be sway’d… Remember when, and let your heart be staid.”

~Omnia Sol

“Open wide your eyes, because life is a great adventure; each day is a new surprise.”
