Kurt Vonnegut: Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
there is truth in this. but not as much truth as it implies. what we photograph is what we find beautiful or thrilling or heartbreakingly stunning. do we fear losing beauty? or do we simply want to hold on to it? is there a difference?
Life is too short~I love this and need to read this daily to remind myself of this when others offend or hurt my feelings that I care about and remember not everyone is on my side or has my best interest at heart
