My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.
The marks humans leave are too often scars.
Almost everyone is obsessed with leaving a mark upon the world. Bequeathing a legacy. Outlasting death. We all want to be remembered. I do, too.. That’s what bothers me most, is being another unremembered casualty in the ancient and inglorious war against disease. I want to leave a mark.
…the voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again.
…it is possible to live with pain.
Do the thing you’re good at. Not many people are lucky enough to be so good at something.
Grief does not change you… It reveals you.
Pain is like fabric: The stronger it is, the more it’s worth.
…what we want is to be noticed by the universe, to have the universe give a shit what happens to us - not the collective idea of sentient life but each of us, as individuals.
Omnis cellula e cellula
All cells come from cells. Every cell is born of a previous cell, which was born of a previous cell. Life comes from life. Life begets life begets life begets life begets life.
— Peter Van Houten (The Fault In Our Stars)
Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.
Sometimes it seems the universe wants to be noticed
…in freedom, most people find sin.
You’ve gotta pick your battles in this world,
