Quotes

Quote Left Love like an ocean is mercurial. Subject to changing constancy; underneath the waves, in the deepest bed lies true love, watching us tread water, waiting for us to turn late or early, it does not matter; we dive deeper to find its arms open, ready to envelop us. We go searching for pearls, drowning in it all, treasure like wisdom to be found. Quote Right

Quote Left Life above the waves, Blue Sky reflects light, deeper than we care to admit. Sun and gold found in the unlikeliest depths, lighting up all dimensions. And we rise. Eventually. Quote Right

Quote Left Love always calls us in. Unexpected, abrupt or not - the exit...the entrance, Love always calls us back in. (Leanne Lovejoy-Burton/aka Lady Labyrinth). Quote Right

Quote Left We don't write words. We don't paint words. We eat words. Writers, Poets, the Reader, the Inquisitive. The more hungry, the more words eaten. What evolves is the lesson emanating from what is regurgitated. Too full up. After all is said ... and done...do words mean a jot? When the other chapter opens, and the old closes. Sense kicks in.

Quote Left "Listening is all well and good", she said. "Watch and learn, read between the lines; Morse Code, a gift of Love - for you," she said. Quote Right

Quote Left Colours dance before our eyes, starbursts take us up and down through tunnels rollercoaster rides home - sex, love, birth, death, all through spectral colours, life sensual senses something electric, close and far away, in the green and blue dance. Quote Right

Quote Left My God is a poet singing me home with their genderless pronouns, sticky love like blood tar the tears in my eyes the black heart is fixed on, feeling the sum of the parts, communion is served best without - heavy armour worn gospels, the insides torn, turned out. Quote Right

Quote Left "'Choices' are the tokens that take us to places perhaps we never wished we'd visited, but we leave with greater knowledge and a firmer and clearer understanding of ourselves and the truth of it all. We are a book of life constantly re-editing our pages and at the root of it all, we rely on our internal compass - for some, this is an elusive marker to locate, but eventually it is found. Never judge a book by its cover." Quote Right

Quote Left "My mother is the strongest human I know and her blood runs through my veins. It pumps through my veins, hot as the lava that spills forth in Hell. She is formidable and she is in ...me. Always. This is at once both frightening and liberating. I know no other love like this - it is all consuming, feral, exhilarating wild. She says, one day I will meet my match. I asked her, who will that be? She responded, You will know. I wonder. Will it be my lover, or my child?" Quote Right

Quote Left "My muse is my daughter My strength is hers My muse is my mother Her strength is mine My muse are my sisters My strength is theirs My muse is my soul Our strength is eternal" Quote Right

Quote Left The greatest people of strength, the survivors, men and women alike, will always find a way to turn their weakness into strength, to learn from their greatest and smallest falls, how to rise and they will ultimately use their strength to face forward and move towards the Sun. Quote Right

Quote Left There is LIFE to be lived...after all is said and done. Women are built to withstand and bare the greatest pain in life, sometimes that will result in death, and perhaps if not death, a great loss of some incomprehensible proportion/s - but mostly, there is a strength that is inherently congenital to deliver beauty through something more substantial than looks and coquettish wiles. Quote Right

Quote Left Women have the greatest capacity to turn their weaknesses into strength, and for the ones who cannot see that in themselves, it is up to the other women who are aware of their own strength, to support and stand with them, to show them they have that in them, that strength. Quote Right

Quote Left Women are the greatest survivors. The Truth of all that is, that even when they have left this Earth, they leave their strength in their lineage. There are good men out there as well. But...as Kipling would tout, and he was spot on, "the female of the species is much stronger than the male. Quote Right

Quote Left What makes a man or woman, human? What makes a human put thoughts into words into stories? Surely, it is the Soul, the Higher Self that has the wish to convene with other souls. Is LOVE not the truest form of collaboration? When love transports a human out of the story into real life, then souls truly do meet. (Leanne Lovejoy-Burton writing as LadyLabyrinth) Quote Right

Quote Left "Perhaps, there is one thing that can defeat the Poet's heart, "Truth" in Love, because trust in Love is fallible without truth." (LadyLabyrinth, aka Leanne Lovejoy-Burton) Quote Right

Quote Left "Poetry is the unveiling of all things beautiful, ugly, and real under ectoplasmic gauze and glamour mists or raw and in your face, presenting an underlying hidden truth, but always with passion and an underlying presence of truth." (LadyLabyrinth, aka Leanne Lovejoy-Burton) Quote Right

Quote Left "Purple is swallowed regal royal and read, the Jade Green shallow ponds of wading tidal pools silently investigated, inquisitive slender fingers turn over smooth rocks and hard shells, eventually surprises - Asteroidea - in the oceans of a distant Turquoise harbour are found and kept; in the pages of dreams, saltwater mirrors fed and treasure boxes opened and plundered." Leanne Lovejoy-Burton Quote Right

Quote Left ah, what happens to a man when he reaches the middle point, stasis turns inwards towards the future; ah, what happens to a man when he reaches crescendo, he drowns in her waves of bravado, each season humbled " Lovejoy-Burton (LadyLabyrinth 3rd Dec 2019) Quote Right

Quote Left "When you cut through all the BULLTWANG, what it really comes down to is, as always, shining through all your fermenting piles of detritus - the common quest, of every man, woman and child - the quest for pure LOVE fulfilled and returned. There is your LIGHT to walk towards and douse yourself in". Quote Right

Quote Left "Bugger the "Group" mentality. I say burn it up with a revolutionary act, start your own. If you didn't exist, there would be no world. You are your own world, your own Cosmos, you are luminescent, keep on shining - the people who matter will move towards your light. Leave the other befuddled fools walk in the dark holding hands, following tails like sheep. This is a fantastic expression of your individuality. Always keep speaking your TRUTH." Quote Right

Quote Left My mind's a minefield. To traverse it and make it out in one piece is a victory I'm trying to avoid. Let me load my paint gun with more colour. Reloading artillery now. Quote Right
