Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon


And I, infinitesima­l being,
drunk with the great starry
void,
likeness, image of
mystery,
I felt myself a pure part
of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke loose on the wind.
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets (via arebirthofwonder)



And the police are simply the hired enemies of this population. They are present to keep the Negro in his place and to protect white business interests, and they have no other function. They are, moreover—even in a country which makes the very grave error of equating ignorance with simplicity—quite stunningly ignorant; and, since they know that they are hated, they are always afraid. One cannot possibly arrive at a more surefire formula for cruelty.

This is why those pious calls to ‘respect the law,’ always to be heard from prominent citizens each time the ghetto explodes, are so obscene. The law is meant to be my servant and not my master, still less my torturer and my murderer. To respect the law, in the context in which the American Negro finds himself, is simply to surrender his self-respect.
James Baldwin (via daughterofzami)

All that remained was the sound of the wind slipping through a stand of white birch trees.
Haruki Murakami, from Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage (via the-final-sentence)

Tian-yu Xiong: “This photograph was taken in the National Library of China, which resides in the middle of Haidian, also known as the educational district of Beijing. As I was wandering the hallways of the library I noticed the astonishing view and repetitive lines present in the architecture. The massive amount of people reading books and studying quietly with electronic devices by their sides also drew my attention to this stunning moment.”

— E.E. Cummings


An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else’s.





The river is within us, the sea is all about us
T. S. Eliot, “The Dry Salvages” (via mitochondria)
