“Maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.”—Emily Giffin (Love the One You’re With) (via kari-shma) (via quote-book) (via iamnotaflobberworm) (via peachfuss)
“There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmonid knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins—their home in the salty depths. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens… . The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up.”—Jerry Waxman (submitted by amourology) (via quote-book) (via lajoiedevivre) (via peachfuss)
WAIT. You're moving to California with Cass??? Why don't I know anything.
Ha! Well, we only started talking about it a few weeks ago. My cousin offered myself and a friend a room in her home (in San Jose) fo’ free! Until we get on our feet. :D I am kind of scared to go alone.. so that was the solution. Weee!
“At one point consciousness-altering devices like the microscope and telescope were criminalized for exactly the same reasons that psychedelic plants were banned in later years. They allow us to peer into bits and zones of Chaos.”—Leary (via strange-eyes)
