“I started to think about being the only person who sees something. Maybe that’s kind of the feeling you have when you’re in love with somebody. That you’re the only one who notices all these beautiful things about them. You know, and you kind of tell your friends “Isn’t she great? Isn’t she great?” And they’re like “Yeah, she’s okay.” You know, but they don’t see her the way you see her. You know, that sort of feeling.”—Jack White (via chasingafeatherinthewind)
Sometimes when I’m making a video, I realize that I’m forcing myself to have a unique opinion on a topic when, in fact, it isn’t an honest opinion….it’s just me searching for something interesting to say. That’s OK, I guess, but I’ve been trying not to do it as much.
“Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.”—Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking (via impetrate)
