Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but “steal” some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be. 
Albert Camus, Notebooks, 1951-1959 (via starrywavves)

Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is
man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience and rebellion that progress has been made. 
Oscar Wilde
 
The nature of the Universe is such that ends can never justify the means. On the contrary, the means always determine the end.

As is always the case, the more cloudy and confused the conception conveyed by a word, with the more aplomb and self-assurance do people use that word, pretending that what is understood by it is so simple and clear that it is not worth . while even to discuss what it actually means.

Balaam’s Ass; (No Good Deed Goes Unpunished)

Balaam, a prophet, was sent to curse his King’s enemies, the Israelites. He rode his faithful donkey toward the Israelites until an angel appeared on the road. Only his donkey could see the angel, so she veered into a field. Balaam beat her until she was back on the road.
Further down, again the angel appeared, again the ass moved aside, and was again harshly beaten.
The third time the angel appeared he blocked the road entirely so they couldn’t pass. The donkey lay down in the road while Balaam beat her mercilessly.
At that point the donkey looked up and asked him, “Why are you beating me? Haven’t I been a good donkey?”
When Balaam agreed, yes she had, he could suddenly see the fearsome angel standing before him, sword in hand.
The angel told him to proceed, and Balaam went and showered blessings upon Israel instead of curses.

They never say to you, “What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?” Instead, they demand, “How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much money does his father make?” Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.

Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again.

No single event can awaken within us a stranger whose existence we had never suspected. To live is to be slowly born.
