Great things are not accomplished by those that yield to trends, fads and popular opinion.
Jack Kerouac (via la-mer-qu-voit-danser)
Is it change the you fear? But what can happen without it? What is dearer to nature or more vital to the universe? Look at everything that sustains you. Can you take a warm bath if the wood you burn to heat the water doesn’t change? Can any of your needs be met without change? Don’t you see, then, that the change resulting in your death is no different and similarly feeds the life of the universe?
Marcus Aurelius (via seethingvaccuum)
And this was my Hollywood career: this was my last night in Hollywood, and I was spreading mustard on my lap in back of a parking-lot.
Have you reason? ‘I have.’ Then why not use it? If reason does its part, what more would you ask?
Marcus Aurelius (via indigospectre)
My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.
Jack Kerouac (via paintdance)
Think of your many years of procrastination; how the gods have repeatedly granted you further periods of grace, of which you have taken no advantage. It is time now to realize the nature of the universe to which you belong, and of that controlling Power whose offspring you are; and to understand that your time has a limit set to it Use it, then, to advance your enlightenment; or it will be gone, and never in your power again.
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Book Two, Number Four. (via asuperfluousman)
I think ‘creativity’ is better described as failing repeatedly until you get something right.
The number one way I found to attract people was to help them connect with their dreams.
I like too many things and get all confused and hung up running from one falling star to another till I drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
Jack Kerouac, On The Road (via shortstory-youre-a-cunt)
Ideas in secret die. They need light and air or they starve to death.
From Seth Godin (via commsaddict)
Dance along the edges
Seth Godin (via commsaddict)
One day I will find the right words and they will be simple.
Jack Kerouac (via aliceroselovesyou)
Do not because a thing is hard for you yourself to accomplish, imagine that it is humanly impossible: but if a thing is humanly possible and appropriate, consider it also to be within your own reach.
