“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’”
"As human beings, we are given a unique opportunity to experience life with all its ups and downs, joys and sorrows. It is a privilege that must not be taken for granted." - Hew Chee Fong (via Noosa Botanical Gardens)
"All of my efforts had been bent on reward; I had not understood that when we want something, we have to have a clear purpose in mind for the thing that we want. The only reason for seeking a reward is to know what to do with that reward.” - The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho
