"E eu me esquecia do acaso da circunstância, o bom tempo ou a tempestade, o sol ou o frio, o amanhecer ou o anoitecer, o gosto dos morangos ou do abandono, a mensagem, ouvida a meias, a manchete dos jornais, a voz ao telefone, a conversa mais anódina, o homem ou a mulher anônimos, tudo aquilo que fala, rumoreja, passa, aflora, vem ao nosso encontro" .

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (via manchannel)

Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound, “purpose larger than the self” kind of understanding.
Bill Bullard  (via texaszetalove)

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.

We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe.
