Alfie Says

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.

—Kurt Vonnegut (via psych-facts)

The biggest coward of a man is to awaken the love of a woman without the intention of loving her.

Slept on.

Slept on.

Our life is frittered away by detail. An honest man has hardly need to count more than his ten fingers, or in extreme cases he may add his ten toes, and lump the rest. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb nail. In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds. Simplify, simplify. Instead of three meals a day, if it be necessary eat but one; instead of a hundred dishes, five; and reduce other things in proportion.

—Henry David Thoreau



I wish Americans knew how little credit the rest of the world gives them when it comes to their knowledge and opinions of racism and oppression in general. They inhabit a bubble of privilige and confusion.
