"There is no explanation for evil. It must be looked upon as a necessary part of the order of the universe. To ignore it is childish; to bewail it senseless… With all my limitations, physical and mental, I have been glad to live. I would not live my life over again. There would be no point in that. Nor would I care to pass again through the anguish I have suffered… The beauty of the morning and the radiance of noon are good, but it would be a very silly person who drew the curtains and turned on the light in order to shut out the tranquillity of the evening."
- W.S. Maugham (via mycolorbook)
"Sometimes I think I understand everything… Then I regain consciousness."
- Ashleigh Brilliant (via mycolorbook)
"Hope and Memory have one daughter and her name is Art, and she has built her dwelling far from the desperate field where men hang out their garments upon forked boughs to be banners of battle. O beloved daughter of Hope and Memory, be with me for a while."
- W.B. Yeats (via observando)
"…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?"
- Vincent van Gogh (via thatkindofwoman)
