Yesterday it was Søren Kierkegaard’s 200th birthday. Hurray! :-)
Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
We’re existentially alone on the planet. I can’t know what you’re thinking and feeling and you can’t know what I’m thinking and feeling. And the very best works construct a bridge across that abyss of human loneliness.
|—||David Foster Wallace (via wordpainting)|
Starting today, you’re not the kind of woman who settles for broken things or hangs on to damaged goods, be it a radio, a pair of shoes, or a relationship. Your life is not a yard sale. It’s time to get rid of all the broken stuff that you’ve been lugging around for days, months, and maybe even years, and make the bold decision to start looking for stuff that works.
