"I have been bent and broken, but — I hope — into a better shape."
Vietnamese photographer Thanh Ha Bui captured this image in his parents’ back garden and, after spotting a line of super strong weaver ants marching across a branch, decided to test their legendary weightlifting skills. First experimenting with pieces of food and leaves, he eventually ended up with this incredible shot.

Language is the liquid that we’re all dissolved in.
Great for solving problems, after it creates a problem.

I’m tired and you’re sad and both of us could use a break from all of this. I can’t help but shiver, shiver, here without you.

"And I pray to God that one day, He will grant me the power to reach out and hold my hand over your head and give you instant belief, ‘cause you don’t have instant belief. You’ve been hooked, you’ve been crooked, you’ve been lied to so many times, that you’re suspicious-minded. And when the right thing comes along, you don’t believe in it. When I’m coming in knocking on the front door, you’re out the back door looking for four leaf clovers. And when you find it, you think somebody planted it there to fool you. ‘What’s the angle?’ You look for an excuse. In this modern day and age we have instant coffee and instant tea—instant disbelief. That’s the reason we will never become anything—it is because we will never believe in ourselves. We will always listen to the mass majority. If everybody’s making fun of you and criticizing you, then you know you’re on the right track. Cause most people ain’t got it."

But you’re always shining without ever trying.
You’re always shining.
You’re the only one that I see.
I get so extroverted, but only when no one else is looking.
