"I’d rather be around a passionate nerd than a non-passionate cool person. Because if you lack passion, your soul is diminishing by the second. You have to be passionate about something. Call it obsessed or whatever you want, but be obsessed about something. Obsessed people care. I’m passionate about so many things, it becomes an issue at certain points, but at least you have the ability to feel that much about something"
"Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents and everyone is writing a book."
Cicero, circa 43 BC (via amandaonwriting)
“The recency illusion is the belief or impression that something is of recent origin when it is in fact long-established.”
"A great hope fell
You heard no noise
The ruin was within."
