“Get scared. It will do you good. Smoke a bit, stare blankly at some ceilings, beat your head against some walls, refuse to see some people, paint and write. Get scared some more.

So, please, do poetical justice to your soul and simply experience yourself.”—Albert Camus, Notebooks, 1951-1959 (via exoticwild)

“The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world.
