“Practically speaking, a life that is vowed to simplicity, appropriate boldness, good humor, gratitude, unstinting work and play, and lots of walking brings us close to the actual existing world and its wholeness.”
- Gary Snyder, The Practice of the Wild (via davidbcates)
“I heard once that real love doesn’t ask what is in it for me; it just gives unconditionally. It just tries to take the weight out of somebody else’s pack, lessen his load, and if it gets reciprocated, that’s great, but that isn’t what you did it for.”
- Donald Miller, Through Painted Deserts (via awelltraveledwoman)
I know I left a life behind
But I’m too relieved to grieve.
