File this under “Seriously bad ass can’t be killed motherfuckers”… a guy is driving through the desert and his car breaks down. Instead of crying and wandering through the desert on foot, leading to his ultimate demise, he takes the car apart and turns it into a fucking motorcycle.
You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.
You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth.
“We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel… is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.”—Ursula K. Le Guin (via misswallflower)
“A good book is an education of the heart. It enlarges your sense of human possibility, of what human nature is, of what happens in the world. It’s a creator of inwardness.”—Susan Sontag (via andyouhavetogivethemhope)
