Stars and Ashes

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”

- Friedrich Nietzsche -

Time to leave now, get out of this room, go somewhere, anywhere; sharpen this feeling of happiness and freedom, stretch your limbs, fill your eyes, be awake, wider awake, vividly awake in every sense and every pore.

— Stefan Zweig (via realizes)

Come from forever, and you will go everywhere

—Arthur Rimbaud. (via mfs)

In the sunset of dissolution, everything is illuminated by the aura of nostalgia, even the guillotine.

—Milan Kundera
(via petrichour)

(via cheri-nihiliste)

My fear of life is necessary to me, as is my illness. Without anxiety and illness, I am a ship without a rudder. My art is grounded in reflections over being different from others. My sufferings are part of my self and my art. They are indistinguishable from me, and their destruction would destroy my art. I want to keep those sufferings.

—Edvard Munch  (via petrichour)

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.
