Yearning for permanence, and who wouldn’t?
Longing to believe it will last forever,
But what does? Nothing I know of.
Even the things that seem to stand still
Flow slowly into other forms.
The beloved’s first and only lesson:
Everything that is, becomes.

- Men weren’t even allowed to touch a woman’s hand if she had not agreed to it or he would be punished by law.
Don’t marry a man unless you would be proud to have a son exactly like him.
Surround yourself with people who know your worth. You do not need too many people to make you happy, just a few real ones who appreciate you for exactly who you are.
