Mahmoud Darwish (13 March 1941 – 9 August 2008)

“Sometimes it seems that all our words, even those for love,
are written in another language. And yet they still arrive,
distant, full of their own silences which may be what
allows us to invent another story, what saves us. What is
the word for the kind of love the woman shows now?
A word that contains the whole story the way her lamp
contains her room,”

Richard Jackson, from “The Whole Story,” Resonance: Poems (The Ashland Poetry Press, 2010)

“I was always attracted not by some quantifiable, external beauty, but by something deep down, something absolute. Just as some people have a secret love for rainstorms, earthquakes, or blackouts, I liked that certain undefinable something.”

– Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun (via wordsnquotes)

“Curiosity is, in great and generous minds, the first passion and the last.”

– Samuel Johnson, Works of Samuel Johnson (via wordsnquotes)

things advised not to do on your pilgrimage: hunt down the geth after they first emerge after a 100 years behind the veil and steal it’s memory core because of curiosity 

Just had my first job interview in ages. Now the waiting begins to see if I actually get it.
