Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. 

Climb that goddamn mountain.

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.” - August Wilson

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

Lost In Translation

It’s about misunderstandings between people and places, being disconnected and looking for moments of connection. There are so many moments in life when people don’t say what they mean, when they are just missing each other, waiting to run into each other in a hallway.”

Sofia Coppola (on Lost in Translation)


“She stood over me, an empire of flesh, and I, a poor acolyte, worshipping her naked beauty.” - Dark Raven

“You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.”

“There is immeasurably more left inside than what comes out in words.” - Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Passion builds over time like steam. Let it rage until it’s exhausted and then leave it alone to let it build up again. Why can’t love be insane and distorted? How can it be vital if it has the same threshold as normal day-to-day experience?  And then when desire shows the first sign of contentment, throw it back in its cage and let it slowly build itself back into a state of starved fury. Now that is worth the miles and the time. That matches the inferno of life.”

Henry Rollins

Ode To a Flower

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.”
