On truth

For me, writing is an act of reciprocity with the world; it is what I can give back in return for everything that has been given to me.

Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

“Once you have flown, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you have been, there you long to return.”
— Leonardo Da Vinci (via 4curious)
“I want to live so densely, lush and slow in the next few years, that a year becomes ten years, and my past becomes only a page in the book of my life.”
— Nayyirah Waheed  (via thatkindofwoman)
