“Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.” —Buddha (via rainbowsandwitheringwinters)
“For the first time since I had been in Barcelona I went to have a look at the cathedral [La Sagrada Familia] — a modern cathedral, and one of the most hideous buildings in the world… Unlike most of the churches in Barcelona it was not damaged during the revolution — it was spared because of its ‘artistic value,’ people said. I think the Anarchists showed bad taste in not blowing it up when they had the chance.” —
George Orwell, on La Sagrada Familia, 1937
My girlfriend has been
in Spain for our entire spring break thus far and I miss her uncontrollably. She’s having fun, I know, but this break is almost miserable without her. I’m in love with her.
She’s my jujube.
