"A clear horizon, nothing to worry about on your plate. Only things that are creative and not destructive. That’s within yourself, within me I can’t bear quarreling I can’t bare feelings between people. I think hatred is wasted energy. It’s all nonproductive. I’m very…
I ask that you please consider signing the petition below. The film community is urging the Academy to honor the tragic death of a crew member during this years Academy Awards In Memoriam program.
This 27 year old woman’s death was senseless and tragic, and we would like to both honor her memory, shed light on the sometimes hazardous working conditions we go through, and begin to educate the general public about the true cost, labor and people that stand behind the camera of their favorite shows and movies.
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”—Carl Jung (via psych-facts)
“The book is the shadow of something inside the mind of the writer and that the author cannot clearly grasp: that shadow gains reality and the rest disappears. The work becomes real and the idea is left as a vestige of the work, progressively more unreal. When reading Yeats’ earlier poems—only good after twenty years, after many corrections and changes—I think that he initially wrote them in order to reach their current form: they are poems that needed the author’s entire life to reach their perfect form. Perhaps, in the mind of the poets, there are no “bad” poems; perhaps in each bad poem there is a good poem, the one that moved the author to write it. Yeats began writing his poems because he confusedly saw them as they are now, in their current form after the final corrections; perhaps bad poems are merely unfinished poems.”—Jorge Luis Borges (via apoetreflects)
“The judge tilted his great head. The man who believes that the secrets of the world are forever hidden lives in mystery and fear. Superstition will drag him down. The rain will erode the deeds of his life. But that man who sets himself the task of singling out the thread of order from the tapestry will by the decision alone have taken charge of the world and it is only by such taking charge that he will effect a way to dictate the terms of his own fate.”—Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian (via robcam-wfu)
“The one thing which we seek with insatiable desire is to forget ourselves, to be surprised out of our propriety, to lose our sempiternal memory and to do something without knowing how or why; in short to draw a new circle. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. The way of life is wonderful. It is by abandonment.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson, from “Circles" in Essays and English Traits (Harvard Classics, 1909-14, essay originally published in 1841)
“Every reader, I suspect, has a book like this somewhere in his or her past, a book that seemed to hold within it, at that moment, all the mysteries of the universe.”—Anna Quindlen; How Reading Changed My Life (via wordpainting)
