college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?

I’ve heard that there’s a kind of bird without legs that can only fly and fly, and sleep in the wind when it is tired. The bird only lands once in its life… that’s when it dies.

The best thing about my profession is that there’s no need to make any decision. Who’s to die, when and where, it’s all been planned by others. I’m a lazy person. I like others to arrange things for me. But I’ve been doing some thinking lately. I feel the need for change. Whether it’s right or wrong… I must make a decision for myself”

Fallen Angels (墮落天使)(1995)

"Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but “steal” some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be."
- Albert Camus, Notebooks, 1951-1959 (via starrywavves)

give yourself over to the wolf. let it eat the parts of you that are sick, that are damaged beyond salvage. let the wolf in and let it clean house, and let it leave again. the wolf knows which parts must be swallowed. you do not need what it takes, and where it bites you the wounds will heal. let the wolf in and let it eat you, and let it leave again.

"I am overwhelmed with things I ought to have written about and never found the proper words."

“She is by far the most committed, dedicated, focused actor i have ever worked with.  a year before we started making the movie, on her own dime for 365 days she trained for eight hours, swam a mile a day, learned ballet, became a prima ballerina, and then when we shot, every single day she was in every single scene in every shot, and she shared her heart, soul and spirit with me and with the world.” 

- Darren Aronofsky on working with Natalie Portman for Black Swan.
