"Why do they always teach us that it’s easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It’s the hardest thing in the world—to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want."

Ayn Rand (via observando)

"You are not afraid.
You are a cathedral waiting to be filled with hymns;
you are an infinite playground;
you are sky-bound and sprinting,
so cover your heart in goose-bump armor.
It will only beat stronger,
beat louder."

From “Perfectly Human” by Miles Walser.   (via marcescentfleur)

Vincent van Gogh

"Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new."

Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven (via observando)

"We wear clothes, and speak, and create civilizations, and believe we are more than wolves. But inside us there is a word we cannot pronounce and that is who we are.

— Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Saw a detail of this gorgeous sculpture cross my dash and had to see the full piece.  A beautiful creation called ‘The Waltz’ by Camille Claudel.
