Once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about. — Haruki Murakami (via in-finitus)
Writing cannot express words fully; words cannot express thoughts fully. — The Book of Changes, c. 350 BC (via laphamsquarterly)
Be intellectually and morally rigorous in your own decision-making, and expect that the important people in your life do the same, if they want to stay important to you. — Rachel Maddow, Smith College 2010 Commencement Address (via transformfeminism)

ART PROJECTDraw a picture
of the thing you love the most
and beneath it write a small description
of how and why.
Take that picture and make fifty copies
the size of business cards,
cut them out and put them in your wallet.
Each time you meet someone,
instead of giving them your phone number
give them this card.
Once the first fifty are gone,
make fifty more.
Change the picture and the description
as often as needed.
Repeat until you’ve met everyone on earth.
Nothing ever happens the way you imagine it will. But then again, if you don’t imagine, nothing ever happens at all. — John Green (via quote-d)
