How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. A. A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh (via keefrich)
When beholding a majestic 13,000-year-old Eucalyptus tree, how can human arrogance dare deny its reality under the blindness of dogma? At a time when 40% of the American public don’t believe Earth is more than 6,000 years old, Rachel Sussman’s magnificent photographs of the oldest living things in the world stand not only as a masterpiece of art but also a masterpiece of science communication.  (via explore-blog)

To the quiet ones:

You’re the observers in this life, there is no requirement for it to be explained with words, you just understand. As if you’re sitting on an old brick wall, watching others go through the motions of this life. All of them experiencing their own individual realities, depending on their personal perception. You might be hushed, and some others will not be able to comprehend as to why. Perhaps deeming you detached, vacant and “in the clouds.” Little do they know there is thunder inside of you, a universe of depth, all locked up by a door, and few who own a key. Some, however, will be able to see this inner world within you, like staring through glass, and those are the souls worth seeking.

If you ever feel disheartened in a rowdy place, surrounded by people, and you find yourself wordless, remember you are the most silent of strengths. We need more meaningful thoughts in this world than waggling, impulsive tongues. I admire this about you, and you should feel confident in your quiet power, it’s a gift.

So am I

Too old or not American enough to get the 420 thing?

ITV, you are really spoiling me.

On a day like today, my master William Faulkner said, “I decline to accept the end of man.” I would fall unworthy of standing in this place that was his, if I were not fully aware that the colossal tragedy he refused to recognize thirty-two years ago is now, for the first time since the beginning of humanity, nothing more than a simple scientific possibility. Faced with this awesome reality that must have seemed a mere utopia through all of human time, we, the inventors of tales, who will believe anything, feel entitled to believe that it is not yet too late to engage in the creation of the opposite utopia. A new and sweeping utopia of life, where no one will be able to decide for others how they die, where love will prove true and happiness be possible, and where the races condemned to one hundred years of solitude will have, at last and forever, a second opportunity on earth. In the wake of Gabriel García Márquez’s death, wisdom from his 1982 Nobel Prize acceptance speech. Complement with Faulkner’s iconic 1950 Nobel speech on the role o the writer as a booster of the human heart, which Márquez bows to here. (via explore-blog)
