William James (via philosophy-quotes)
“Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

“In a quiet revolution in thought and argument that hardly anybody could have foreseen only two decades ago, God is making a comeback. Most intriguingly, this is happening not among theologians or ordinary believers, but in the crisp intellectual circles of academic philosophers, where the consensus had long banished the Almighty from fruitful discourse.”
Time Magazine (April 7, 1980)
“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.”
Noam Chomsky (via philosophy-quotes)

Keeping my head below water…
I had a dream about a place last night that was so beautiful. It was a landscape of black marble with waterfalls and currents of water everywhere. People were laughing and enjoying the water and there was no stress in sight. Everything was peaceful and exciting. I wish I could go back and take photographs of it, but I can’t. So instead, I’m going to have to find a way to live my dream.
