Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.
Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.
Nymphomaniac Vol. I, Lars von Trier, 2013
Edgar Degas, The Dance Class, ca. 1873-76
I’m wasting my young years
It doesn’t matter here
I’m chasing more ideas
It doesn’t matter here…
Anna Quindlen, How Reading Changed My Life
