Not putting a filter on this because I want everyone to see how insanely green my eyes are tonight. My eyes are also a little misty from being on the verge of crying during The Cure performance tonight. They were magnificent.
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
