Words and passages that caught my eye this month:

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone.

Robin Williams via SF Girl By Bay


I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.

Jack Kerouac


Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.

Voltaire


If you don’t underestimate me, I won’t underestimate you.

Bob Dylan via Stop Stealing Dreams
