“Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, “Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.” So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look.”Marina Abramović (via madeinmezzanine)
“She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
Eleanor & Park, Rainbow Rowell (via oddi-tea)

Muscle is created by repeatedly lifting things that have been designed to weigh us down. So when your shoulders feel heavy, stand up straight and lift your chin – call it exercise. When the world crumbles around you, you have to look at the wreckage and then build a new one out of all the pieces that are still here. Remember, you are still here.
The human heart beats approximately four thousand times per hour. Each pulse, each throb, each palpitation is a trophy engraved with the words ‘You are still alive.’
You are still alive.
Act like it.” Rudy Francisco (via thedragonflywarrior)
