“Your health is what you make it. It’s never going to be a cookie-cutter approach that someone else prescribes. Your body is unique & it’s up to you to nourish it in the individual ways it needs. When in doubt, listen to your body. It always tells what’s working, and what isn’t.” — Ashley Barnes (via liquid-diamonds-flowing)

“If we were all to share these things and have five high technology lawnmowers (instead of five hundred) per suburb, such a lawnmower could never viably be produced, and therefore the monetary economic model as we know it would collapse, given that the same logic applies to all other high technology products also. [We have built] an economy where sharing means collapse.” — Mark Boyle - Moneyless Manifesto

“I realized that you had no power over me, that it was not you alone who were my lover but the entire earth. It was as if my soul had extended countless sensitive feelers, and I lived within everything, perceiving simultaneously Niagara Falls thundering far beyond the ocean and the long golden drops rustling and pattering in the lane.” — Vladimir Nabokov, Sounds, from The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov (via bookmania)

“Down the steep drop-off to sea
without plummeting.
Returned by thermals and sweat to the sky
without rising.
Each following the lost one before it,
thirteen sandpipers and their aluminum streaks
write one word for me in the air
and at the same time
erase it.” — John Sibley Williams (via talkativolive)
