    Words and emotions are simple currencies. If we inflate them, they lose their value, just like money. They begin to mean nothing

    The whispering waves were half asleep/the clouds were gone to play/And on the woods, and on the deep/the smile of Heaven lay
    Adreannah Vetehas quoted3 years ago
    There would seem to be nothing more obvious,
    more tangible and palpable than the present moment.
    And yet it eludes us completely.
    All the sadness of life lies in that fact.
    —Milan Kundera
