The universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we CAN suppose.
J. B. S. Haldane, biologist
"You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation… and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else."
Hermann Hesse, Wer lieben kann, ist glücklich. Über die Lieb (via negromodelo)
Miles Davis, after being beaten and arrested by New York City police outside the club Birdland. It’s cool that this sort of thing is totally in the past.
"What I was trying to do, and perhaps what all writers try to do, was to combat fiction with fiction."
Karl Ove Knausgaard, ‘My Struggle vol 1’
There’s a little man who wants me dead,
he stalks my dreams, he circles my bed.
Should i run, he trains the laser pistol at my head-
and through yellowing teeth, with dead black eyes
this little fucker tells me lies.
And If I don’t believe, then the little man hides:
He throws his voice across rooms;
haunts from sacred tombs;
he holds out mother’s breast;
he feigns lovers’ caress -
And should i still set myself at odds,
then my little man whispers in the voice of GOD.
"Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is."
Albert Camus (via arristide)
"Every individual is at once the beneficiary and the victim of the linguistic tradition into which he has been born - the beneficiary inasmuch as language gives access to the accumulated records of other people’s experience, the victim in so far as it confirms him in the belief that reduced awareness is the only awareness and as it bedevils his sense of reality, so that he is all too apt to take his concepts for data, his words for actual things."
A. Huxley (via mycolorbook)

Hooray for this.
"The less I needed, the better I felt."

Does anyone know who composed the “theme song” for First Winter? or the name of the song. Anything? I’ve been searching for an hour now.
my friend Jaffe Zinn wrote it and played it live in the film
maybe we should release a soundtrack
