Quotes

Feel

1/30/2017

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from

that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break

you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason

you are  here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be

swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or

left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and

listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their

sweetness. Tell yourself  you tasted as many as you could.”

– Louise Erdrich

  3. its really nice. a suggestion if i may.. line breaks should be at appropriate places which won’t put brakes on the flow of the reader.. like for eg: “You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason
    you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart.”
    can just simply be “You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth.
    You are here to risk your heart”

    Just my thoughts.
    Your writing is heartwarming 🙂
