“Clocks cannot tell our time of day
For what event to pray
Because we have no time, because
We have no time until
We know what time we fill,
Why time is other than time was.
Nor can our question satisfy
The answer in the statue’s eye:
Only the living ask whose brow
May wear the Roman laurel now;
The dead say only how.

What happens to the living when we die?
Death is not understood by Death; nor You, nor I.”
– W.H. Auden, “We’re Late”

MOUTH: Six favorite quotes.

1.) “For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.” – Virginia Woolf

2.) “To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ” – e. e. Cummings

3.) “You are a lion; take what’s yours.” – Jack Donaghy

4.) “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” – Jack Kerouac

5.) “So to grace, how great a debtor

Daily I’m constrained to be

And let Thy goodness like a fetter

Bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it

Prone to leave the God I love

Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it

Seal it for Thy courts above” – Robert Robinson

6.) “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way. . . things I had no words for.” – Georgia O’Keeffe

“an adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. an inconvenience is an adventure wrongly considered.”

– g. k. chesterton

this was my first of many incredible sunrises and sunsets in indo.

i’ve been thinking a lot these days about why i am attracted to what i am and what i want out of this life. i know deep down that i was born to wander, take my time, and never take for granted the little joys in life.
