THIS IS WATER (by SeeTheGlossary)

(Abridged) convocation speech made by David Foster Wallace in 2005. Like aloe for your busy brain.

Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.

That which is evident.
Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.

There is an ugliness in being paid for work one does not like.
Anais Nin, 1941
(via Sherwood Anderson on Art and Life: A Letter of Advice to His Teenage Son, 1927 | Brain Pickings)
The object of art is not to make salable pictures. It is to save yourself.
Sherwood Anderson (1927)

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Howard Thurman

Sometimes even the most optimistic of us need a little help, to come alive..

Keep it simple.

Yep.
