Quotes to Lift Your Spirits...

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
-Nelson Mandela


Life was too short to be with someone who wasn’t quite right, someone who made you think more than they made you feel."
-Anaïs Escobar, a bright wall in a dark room: The Heart is a Resilient Little Muscle

"And though the waves might bring you down and though the currents might pull you under, the sky is always still right above you."
-I Wrote This For You

"I throw my whole body, my soul into the fall, into love, into that new person. I can’t help it, I love and then think about how I’ll pick up my bones later. I’ll do this every time no matter how much I’m hating fixing up my wounds right now. My brain always reaches the rest of my body way too late and it begins again."
-Anaïs Escobar, The Art of Breaking Up


"All I ask is one thing, and I’m asking this particularly of young people: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism, for the record, it’s my least favorite quality and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen."
-Conan O’Brien


“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember that Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to.’”
-Jim Jarmusch
