"When I am feeling depressed and anxious sullen
all you have to do is take off your clothes
and all is wiped away revealing life’s tenderness
that we are flesh and breathe and are near us
as you are really as you are I become as I
really am alive and knowing vaguely what is
and what is important to me above the intrusions
of incident and accidental relationships
which have nothing to do with my life
when I am in your presence I feel life is strong
and will defeat all its enemies and all of mine
and all of yours and yours in you and mine in me
sick logic and feeble reasoning are cured
by the perfect symmetry of your arms and legs
spread out making an eternal circle together
creating a golden pillar beside the Atlantic
the faint line of hair dividing your torso
gives my mind rest and emotions their release
into the infinite air where since once we are
together we always will be in this life come what may”
-Poem, Frank O’Hara
"Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future."
"When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you aren’t saying ‘no’ to yourself."
"Even if you come home late and I’m already asleep, just whisper in my ear one little thought you had today. Because I love the way you look at the world. And I’m so happy I get to be next to you and look at the world through your eyes."
Theodore Twombly, Her
i think this is one of the best parts of loving someone- seeing the world the way they do. i am most easily attracted to people who see the world in a way i admire. it’s one of the best qualities a person can have. also, i am reminded how great this movie is.
