The Way

‘There is a sunrise and a sunset every day and you can choose to be there for it. You can put yourself in the way of beauty.’

– Jean-Marc Vallée. (Director). (2014). Wild [Motion picture].

‘Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.’

– Charlie Chaplin.


‘He smiled understandingly – much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced – or seemed to face – the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favour. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.’

– F. Scott Fitzgerald. 1925. The Great Gatsby.

New World

‘Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it  refines itself.’

– George Orwell. Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Minority vs. Sanity

‘Being in a minority, even a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.’

– George Orwell. Nineteen Eighty-Four.
