لن أنصحك بشيء , فلا شيء أثقل على النفس الحرة من تلقي النصائح

What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured. Kurt Vonnegut (via introspectivepoet)
But the present is
not sufficiently distant for observation.
Gordon Hadfield, from Via Soma (via violentwavesofemotion)

It’s a metaphor, see: you hold a pen with your homework in front of you, but you don’t do it, you don’t give it the power to do its killing

I am convinced that most people do not grow up. We find parking spaces and honour our credit cards. We marry and dare to have children and call that growing up. I think what we do is mostly grow old. We carry accumulations of years in our bodies and on our faces, but generally our real selves, the children inside, are still innocent and shy as magnolias. Maya Angelou, Letter to my daughter
I believe that one can never leave home. I believe that one carries the shadows, the dreams, the fears and dragons of home under one’s skin, at the extreme corners of one’s eyes and possibly in the gristle of the earlobe. Maya Angelou, Letter to my daughter

Do not consider poverty a humiliation nor wealth an honor. Poverty tests your patience. Wealth tests your gratefulness. Q89:15–16  (Via Sidi Musa Furber)

Abu Ali, the old Bookseller on Mutanabbi Street died today on April 10th, 2014. 

Anyone who sells books for living and offers the world a window to knowledge deserves a little acknowledgement, so please recite Al-fatiha for him.
