Marguerite Mary

"habit is necessary, it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive...one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration of one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in the big things, and happy in small ways."
-edith wharton

Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.
