Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.
Ernest Hemingway (via larmoyante)
If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree, I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up! Not me!
― J.M. Barrie
not sure of the original artist but…
If you are alone you belong entirely to yourself. If you are accompanied by even one companion you belong only half to yourself or even less in proportion to the thoughtlessness of his conduct and if you have more than one companion you will fall more deeply into the same plight.
― Leonardo da Vinci
I just watched this three times in a row and I’m going to watch it again in a second but I’ll just take a break now to type this since I’m already doing so, so it makes sense. Actually, I didn’t really WATCH it the third time, I listened to it and gazed out into the distance; the distance being only so far to my bookshelves but it doesn’t matter because I wasn’t really looking at them. The point is…wow…apparently words can’t describe this…or else my limited vocabulary can’t.
