 The round pegs in the square holes.
 The ones who see things differently.
 They’re not fond of rules.
 And they have no respect for the status quo.
 You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
 disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. 
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
 Because they change things. 
They invent. They imagine.
 They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.
 They push the human race forward. 
Maybe they have to be crazy.
 How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
 Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
 Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect.

In an era of extreme busyness, the only conceivable way to live a meaningful life is to not do thousands of meaningful things.

Sirens calling

(via vintage-prejudice)

I was surprised, as always, how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt. The world was suddenly rich with possibility
