Financial Intelligence


Everyone who terrifies you is 65% water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust,
and I know
you cannot breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
that you are down to your last two percent,
nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and
one day,
you are going to find yourself again.
– Finn Butler
