This page is for any little gem (self-help articles, quotes, travel tips, life-navigation tools, etc.) that I am inspired and motivated by.
FOREVER a work in progress, as I’ve said. Hope you find some meaning in them too!
I had always believed in André Breton’s freedom, to write as one thinks, in the order and disorder in which one feels and thinks, to follow sensations and absurd correlations of events and images, to trust to the new realms they lead one into. “The cult of the marvelous.” Also the cult of the unconscious leadership, the cult of mystery, the evasion of false logic. The cult of the unconscious as proclaimed by Rimbaud. It is not madness. It is an effort to transcend the rigidities and the patterns made by the rational mind. – Anaïs Nin
Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. – Lao Tzu
“The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it, and turn it inside out.” – Unknown
“Fear is a worry about the future, which doesn’t exist.” – Leo Babauta
“Simplicity boils down to two steps: Identify the essential. Eliminate the rest.” – Leo Babauta
