Stars and Ashes

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

- Friedrich Nietzsche

The unexpected mutations, the sheer baselessness of beings, the volatility of things…By necessity we live in a world, a sideshow world, where everything is ultimately peculiar and ultimately ridiculous.

—"Sideshow, and Other Stories," Teatro Grottesco (via sisyphean-revolt)

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

—Charles William Eliot (via kushandwizdom)
