"There's no excuse to be bored. Sad, yes. Angry, yes. Depressed, yes. Crazy, yes. But there's no excuse for boredom, ever." -Viggo Mortensen

"I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort - and disappointment, and perseverance." -Vincent van Gogh

Reminds me of my favorite quote, "I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious" - Albert Einstein

"The smiles that win, the tints that glow, but tell of days in goodness spent; a mind at peace with all below, a heart whose love was innocent." -Lord Byron, She Walks in Beauty


"Have you ever traveled to a mountainous part of the world when it was cloudy and rainy? You look out your windows and you can see almost nothing but the ground. Then the rain stops and the clouds part and you catch your breath because there, towering right over you, is this magnificent peak. But a couple of hours later the clouds roll in and it has vanished, and you don't see it again for a good while. That is what it is like to get to know a Christian. You have an old self and a new self. The old self is crippled with anxieties, the need to prove yourself, bad habits you can't break, and many besetting sins and entrenched character flaws. The new self is still you, but you liberated from all your sins and flaws. This new self is always a work in progress, and sometimes the clouds of the old self make it almost completely invisible. But sometimes the clouds really part, and you see the wisdom, courage, and love of which you are capable. It's a glimpse of where you are going." -Tim Keller, The Meaning of Marriage

"I thought perhaps she was crazy, but she was only highly intuitive." -Carl Jung
