Pablo Neruda // “You start dying slowly if you do not travel, if you do not read, if you do not listen to the sounds of life… You start dying slowly if you become a slave of your habits, walking everyday on the same paths… You start dying slowly if you avoid to feel passion and their turbulent emotions; those which make your eyes glisten and your heart beat fast. You start dying slowly…if you do not allow yourself, at least once in your lifetime, to run away from sensible advice…”

“I was by myself for a pretty long time. I needed to do that. I think everyone that I know has wanted to do hat or needed to do that at some point. I think when you spend enough time when it’s quiet around you and you don’t open your mouth for three or four days, there’s part of your brain that can kind of rest. I think when we’re out in the world and we have to talk to people, we edit ourselves. You know, we have to like, act a little bit. As honest as we may be as humans, when we’re out of here, we’re all kind of wearing mirrors on our faces. You know, constantly reacting to how people react around you. And I think when you’re alone for a long enough time, you can feel a lot more at peace.” –Justin Vernon
