The heart is but the beach beside the sea that is the world.


“For your answer, you must hear a minimalist composition performed by the wind, watch the dolphins play in moonlight, and listen to the whales singing as you are rocked to sleep by the sea. If this happens to you once, you are still fit material for human company. If it happens to you every night for several years, you can visit the people who live on land, but you will not belong to them ever again.”

— February 5, 1991, Paul Lutus, Confessions of a Long Distance Sailor

`A`ohe loa i ka hana a ke aloha. Distance is ignored by love.

E hele ka `elemakule, ka luahine,
a me na kamali`i a moe i ke ala
`a`ohe mea nana e ho`opilikia.

Let the old men, the old women, and the children go
and sleep on the wayside; let them not be molested.

The Law of the Splintered Paddle,
King Kamehameha I.

“It takes away a lot of the thrill of killing yourself when people are looking for you and you’re disappointing them, because it is a lot of fun when you’re out there killing yourself.” ― Anthony Kiedis, Scar Tissue

Addiction quote: “It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication, willpower and sacrifice. You will need to push your body to its max. There will be temptation. But I promise, it’s worth it.”
