    'It is a characteristic tendency of human beings to indulge in emotions such as happiness, grief, or anger in response to present conditions, failing to balance these feelings with the awareness that present conditions are results of past causes. It is illogical to face the present only as an object of enjoyment or tolerance, neglecting to use it as the opportunity to create the future.'

  2. i’m calling in sick tomorrow 

    i want a full day to feel sad

    to drink tea

    to be in love with myself and tell myself that i honor my quiet efforts

    and that i forgive my honest setbacks 

    to take stock of things i have that are spinning

    to be calm

    to breathe in the clouds

    to water my plants

    and to feel no pressure to do anything or be anyone.

    a day off to love and to feel

  3. be softer with you. you are a breathing thing. a memory to someone. a home to a life.

  4. Rushing into action, you fail.

    Trying to grasp things, you lose them.

    Forcing a project to completion,
    you ruin what was almost ripe.

    Therefore the Master takes action
    by letting things take their course.

    Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)

  5. Thus do I counsel you, my friends: distrust all in whom the impulse to punish is powerful!

“Some find Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran’s poetry preachy and moralizing, but I find it plenty enlightening—it’s hard to object to the melodic, cosmic of mysticism of a line like ‘That which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.’”
This week’s staff picks, including George Saunders talking to an alien, J.D. Daniels on “Room 237,” and Iris Murdoch on good people.

  7. I would only believe in a god who could dance. And when I saw my devil I found him serious, thorough, profound, and solemn: it was the spirit of gravity—through him all things fall. Not by wrath does one kill but by laughter. Come, let us kill the spirit of gravity!
    Nietzsche
  8. You know these things as thoughts, but your thoughts are not your experiences, they are an echo and after-effect of your experiences: as when your room trembles whe na carriage goes past. I however am sitting in the carriage, and often I am the carriage itself.Ina man who thinks like this, the dichotomy between thinking and feeling, intellect and passion, has really disappeared. He feels his thoughts. He can fall in love with an idea. An idea can make him ill.  —Nietzsche

  9. We Experiment On Human Beings!

    dion-thesocialist:

    A fascinating look at OKCupid’s recent experimentation, namely what happened when they presented users with high match percentages (90% or higher) when they actually had a low match percentage (in the 30% range). 

    Namely, this seeks to answer an important question about OKCupid’s assertion that their match percentages accurately reflects chemistry between two people: is the chemistry actually there, or is it only there because OKCupid says it is and people react accordingly?
