i can't help feeling like i'm behind. i want to know everything- scottish architecture, the history of europe, turkish literature, every movie ever made, painters, letters of famous people, i want to know how to appreciate the moment, i want to know how to write, i want to know how to leave. i want to know how to know things, i want to know how to learn. i yearn for it, an apartment with papers everywhere, soft rainfall. i want knowledge, the meaning, the core. i want to know. what do i do?
you start now & you don’t let it overwhelm you. it’s not worth letting the prospect of not knowing everything stop you from knowing something. being bitter and jaded (yeah we’re mere mortals, our brain & knowledge is limited, death is inevitable, so what?) isn’t as cool as people think it is, making the most out of your situation & seeing beauty in the details is where it’s at my friend.
“I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”
