Love is not a destination, it IS the origin — Jeff Foster (via 1he-art)
Be a true representative of the goodness in your heart, and don’t expect it to be easy or even noticed. — Adyashanti (via lazyyogi)
Folks, it’s time to evolve. That’s why we’re troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything’s failing? It’s because, um – they’re no longer relevant. We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right? — Bill Hicks (via intersectionwitheternity)
The pen will never be able to move fast enough to write down every word discovered in the space of memory. Some things have been lost forever, other things will perhaps be remembered again, and still other things have been lost and found and lost again. There is no way to be sure of any this. —

Thus we have neither behind us, nor before us in a luminous realm of values, any means of justification or excuse.—We are left alone, without excuse. — Jean-Paul Sartre, Existentialism Is a Humanism (via vellene)
