"Sing to me of the man, Muse, the man of twists and turns driven time and again off course, once he had plundered the hallowed heights of Troy."

O Muses, O high genius, aid me now! O memory that engraved the things I saw, Here shall your worth be manifest to all!

To love. To be loved.

To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you.

To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair.

To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple.

To respect strength, never power.

Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.

- Arundhati Roy

Befor entering the sea, a river trembles with fear.
She looks back at the path she has traveled, And
in front of her, she sees an ocean so vast, that to enter,
there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.
But there is no other way. The river can not
go back, nobody can go back. The river needs to
take the risk of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear,
because that's where the river will know,
it's not about disappearing into the ocean,
but of becoming the ocean.

- Khalil Gibran

“Magic is all around
Just waiting to be found
A secret it shall be
Until, you choose to see”
