I’m beginning to know myself. I don’t exist.
I’m the space between what i’d like to be and what others
              made of me.
Or half that space, because there’s life there too
So that’s what I finally am…
Turn off the light, close the door, stop shuffling your
              slippers out there in the hall.
Just let me at ease and all by myself in my room.
It’s a cheap world.

-

Pessoa, Fernando. “I’m Beginning to Know Myself. I Don’t Exist.”

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

- Albert Einstein (via wordsnquotes)

I am made and remade continually. Different people draw different words from me.

She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars.
