Bio

"Curiosity is at the heart of authenticity. It’s the end of loneliness." – James Altucher "Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning." – Joseph Campbell via Nicole Daedone (OM) "When personality is scarred tissue, We travel South with disuse I'm subtle like a lion's cage Such a cautious display." – Paul Banks (Interpol) "To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often" – Winston Churchill "What you see determines how you interpret the world, which in turn influences what you expect of the world and how you expect the story of your life to unfold." – Sheena Iyengar "The key to occupational happiness is to first figure out what you're passionate about and then find a job that matches this passion." – Steve Jobs ""I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living." – Anais Nin "Nothing is boring if you can move your mind to meet it" - Aaron Shurin "When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two." – Captain Corelli (via Julia Nutter) “Of all our truest hopes and desires for our work is that, what we find, we ourselves never knew. It came as a shock. It came as a surprise. It was new. We could never have known what we were going to do before we did it, and in that sense, we discover too. Here is what I’ve got to say to you: there are things in your life you will see; there are stories you will hear; if you don’t write them down, if you don’t make the picture, they won’t get seen, they won’t get told.” Emmet Gowin "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." - Jack Kerouac "If I had my life to live over again, I would elect to be a trader of goods rather than a student of science. I think barter is a noble thing." - Albert Einstein "We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality. It cannot lead; it can only serve." - Albert Einstein (courtesy of Julia Nutter) "Emptiness is not a void to be filled, but a window to be looked through" - Alan Watts "Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body." - Martha Graham "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the one who'll decide where you'll go" - Dr. Seuss "He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened." - Lao Tzu "Life itself still remains a very effective therapist." - Karen Horney "Success is not permanent and failure is not fatal" - Mike Ditka "Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile" - Franklin P. Jones "Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend." - Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) Living well is the best revenge. - George Herbert (1593 – 1633)
