I love waking up on Sunday mornings with the feeling of so much to be grateful for.
—A socialite’s Thoughts On A Sunday Morning
There is no such thing as blind ambition in business.

The world is too big for us. Too much is going on, too many crimes, too much violence and excitement. Try as you will, you get behind in the race in spite of yourself. It is an incessant strain to keep pace, and still you lose ground. Science empties its discoveries on you so fast you stagger beneath them in hopeless bewilderment. The political world is news changing so rapidly that you are out of breath trying to keep pace with who’s in and who’s out. Everything is high pressure. Human nature can’t endure much more.

“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3,000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love, but it is the way I can recognize because that is what I do.
Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worthy anything, really.”

Never apologize for having high standards. People who really want to be in your life will rise up to meet them. #GoHigher

Problems are just circumstances waiting for love or a solution.

Just ‘cause you’re amazing.
Just ‘cause now more than ever I feel like I’m the luckiest girl I know.
Just ‘cause I already did.
Just ‘cause you drive me wild & I kinda like it.
Just ‘cause I care.
Just ‘cause I’m thankful.
Just ‘cause you’re having a bad day.
Just ‘cause, you’re you.
Just ‘cause you intrigue me.
Just ‘cause we’re living for the thrill of it.
Just ‘cause we’re in the best & worst of times trying to figure this whole thing out.
Just ‘cause you can make me smile.
Just ‘cause I’m glad that I met you.
Just ‘cause you’re a goof.
Just ‘cause I’m glad you came.
Just ‘cause timing is everything.
Just ‘cause as long as we’re alive, we can change the world.
