“Ridding yourself of things is a way to rid yourself of problems. Say for instance you have a shirt that you look bad in. If you rid yourself of that shirt, suddenly you are beautiful.” —Remnant Time.
“This is from E. E. Cummings: ‘To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best night and day to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.’ The world needs you. It doesn’t need you at a party having read a book about how to appear smart at parties – these books exist, and they’re tempting – but resist falling into that trap. The world needs you at the party starting real conversations, saying, ‘I don’t know,’ and being kind.” —Charlie Kaufman.
