Jostein Gaarder, The Solitaire Mystery




“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering - these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love - these are what we stay alive for.”
- Robin Williams [July 29th 1951 - August 11th 2014]

“Personally I am very pessimistic. But when, for instance, one of my staff has a baby you can’t help but bless them for a good future. Because I can’t tell that child, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t have come into this life.’ And yet I know the world is heading in a bad direction. So with those conflicting thoughts in mind, I think about what kind of films I should be making.” — Hayao Miyazaki (via observando)

There’s something really endearing about people who seem a little nervous or goofy when you spend time with them. Like your presence makes them present. They aren’t following some act or game that some people so regularly play but are genuinely letting their feelings, their fears and their true self escape through the cracks of social niceties.



“The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.” — Laura Ingalls Wilder (via observando)



“A too closely watched flower/blossoms the wrong color./Excess attention to the jonquil/turns it gentian. Flowers/need it tranquil to get/their hues right. Some/only open at midnight.” — Kay Ryan (via observando)



“What it means to be authentic:
- to be more concerned with truth than opinions
- to be sincere and not pretend
- to be free from hypocrisy: “walk your talk”
- to know who you are and to be that person
- to not fear others seeing your vulnerabilities
- being confident to walk away from situations where you can’t be yourself
- being awake to your own feelings
- being free from others’ opinions of you
- accepting and loving yourself” — Sue Fitzmaurice (via observando)



He: What’s the matter with you?

Me: Nothing.

Nothing was slowly clotting my arteries. Nothing slowly numbing my soul. Caught by nothing, saying nothing, nothingness becomes me. When I am nothing they will say surprised in the way that they are forever surprised, “but there was nothing the matter with her.

” — Jeanette Winterson (via observando)
