"If I have not seen as far as others, it is because giants were standing on my shoulders."
-Hal Abelson (via kushandwizdom)
"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life."
-John Lennon (via kushandwizdom)
"Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering."
-Paulo Coelho (via kushandwizdom)
"Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you."
-Chuck Klosterman (via kushandwizdom)
