I cried when I saw this video of the poem «All The Way», by Charles Bukowski.

Watch out for intellect,
because it knows so much it knows nothing
and leaves you hanging upside down,
mouthing knowledge as your heart
falls out of your mouth.
Anne Sexton, The Complete Poems (via kushandwizdom)

Sometimes I feel very alone. I am a bit of a nomad. Many people in sort of emerging countries, emerging economies, find themselves displaced. So there is that sense, and so I’m part of a whole, I think, group of displaced people.

The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it, and he takes pleasure in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing, and life would not be worth living. I am not speaking, of course, of the beauty which strikes the senses, of the beauty of qualities and appearances. I am far from despising this, but it has nothing to do with science. What I mean is that more intimate beauty which comes from the harmonious order of its parts, and which a pure intelligence can grasp.

Don’t you think it’s better to be extremely happy for a short while, even if you lose it, than to be just okay for your whole life?
Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife (via feellng)

To become a master at any skill, it takes the total effort of your: heart, mind, and soul working together in tandem.
