It has always seemed strange to me…The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

"2014 is the year for climate action."

Everyone at the UN climate summit: Please do the right thing this time.

Of course I couldn’t resist. ♥

You are tired,
(I think)
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.

„Sechs Uhr morgens: Ein nebeliger Julimorgen. Alles duftet nach feuchtigkeitsdurchsogenem Waldboden. Alle Fenster sind geschlossen, bis auf die der jungen Schönheit, die vor den Toren der Lungentuberkulose angelangt ist. An diesem Fenster hängt, vom gestrigen Abendprunke, ein tiefblau seidenes Gewand, bewegt sich im Morgenwinde.“
— Peter Altenberg, “Semmering 1912”

One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.
J. W. Goethe

Let’s go to the end of the world; or let’s just have coffee, chocolate, leftovers from breakfast and lazy kisses all afternoon.
