“Break the glass, please, and free us from all these damned rules, from needing to find an explanation for everything, from doing only what others approve of.”
―Paulo Coelho,By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
I shared a shortened version of this quote in my recent post, Book Review: By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept by PauloCoelho. I love the simplicity and the reality of this line, and it is something that strikes a chord within me.

the gentle quake of a sigh upon your
Let me drown in the green river of
your eyes where there
is no threat of war hard silence
or the burden of forgiveness
