For My Someday Child...

Things I want you to know. Lessons I want you to learn. Values I want to instill in you. Mistakes I hope to keep you from making. Wisdom I hope I get the chance to share with you. Music I want you to listen to. Books I want you to read. Quotes I want you to live by.

Don’t let the mob win. Don’t tell your daughter she can’t go out alone at night. Don’t restrict the clothes she wears. Teach your sons better.

Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. Life’s cruelest irony.

We gotta start teaching our daughters to be somebodies instead of somebody’s.

I hate the word homophobia. It’s not a phobia. You are not scared. You are an asshole.

I learn a great deal by merely observing you, and letting you talk as long as you please, and taking note of what you do not say.

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for. It doesn’t interest me how old you are, I want to know if you are willing to risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine. It doesn’t interest me where you live or how rich you are, I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and be sweet to the ones you love. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and truly like the company you keep in the empty moments of your life.

At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.
