“[..] You came upon me carving some kind of little figure out of wood and you said, ‘Why don’t you make something for me? ‘ I asked you what you wanted, and you said, ‘ A box.’ ‘What for?’ ‘To put things in. ‘ ‘What things?’ ‘Whatever you have,’ you said. ‘Well, here’s your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts – the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation. And on top of these are all the gratitude and love I have for you. And still the box is not full.’ “ – East of Eden by John Steinbeck

“When you try your best but you don’t succeed When you get what you want but not what you need When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep Stuck in reverse  When the tears come streaming down your face When you lose something you can’t replace When you love someone but it goes to waste Could it be worse?  Lights will guide you home And ignite your bones I will try to fix you High up above or down below When you’re too in love to let it go But if you never try you’ll never know Just what you’re worth” – Fix You by Coldplay
