"I fall in love with everything. I also hate everything. It’s very hard to be a misanthrope and a romantic."



"You simply don’t have the time
to correct your mistakes.
Write each of your poems,
tersely, mercilessly,
with blood—as if it were your last."




"You have to learn how to care about people without taking on all of their problems."



"The poison leaves bit by bit, not all at once. Be patient. You are healing."
