Man is an artifact designed for space travel.
Rainer Maria Rilke, On Being and the Transitory, from a letter to Halewicz, Duino Elegies, translation by James Blair (via frenchtwist)
Not into a beyond whose shadow darkens the earth, but into a whole, into the whole.
(Source: quote-book, via strange-infatuation)
So you plant your own garden and
decorate your own soul, instead of
waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
