So nice when one’s children are old enough to exchange adult beverage tips with.
“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.”—Amelia Earhart (via coolchicksfromhistory)
“Somebody at one of these places […] asked me: ‘What do you do? How do you write, create?’ You don’t, I told them. You don’t try. That’s very important: ‘not’ to try, either for Cadillacs, creation or immortality. You wait, and if nothing happens, you wait some more. It’s like a bug high on the wall. You wait for it to come to you. When it gets close enough you reach out, slap out and kill it. Or if you like its looks you make a pet out of it.”—Charles Bukowski in a letter to John Corrington, reproduced in:Living on Luck: Selected Letters 1960s-1970s Volume 2, p. 49
