Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep.

You will be dead soon enough.Ernest Hemingway (via infinite-paradox)
Justice among the nations of mankind, and the uplifting of humanity, can be brought about only by those strong and daring men who with wisdom love peace, but who love righteousness more than peace.Theodore Roosevelt (via virtuousbull)
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… it has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.C. S. Lewis (via infinite-paradox)

Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path.Street Smarts: A Learning Process: 11 Things to Know at 25(ish)
