"We die to each other daily. What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them. And they have changed since then. To pretend that they and we are the same is a useful and convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken. We must also remember that at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.”

T.S. Eliot

"Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”
Susan Sontag  
"Being alone never felt right. Sometimes it felt good, but it never felt right.”

"If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life.”
— Pablo Neruda (via springwithcherrytrees)
