There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.

There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we now know we don’t know.

But there are also unknown unknowns — there are things we do not know we don’t know.

former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld

Horror movies often pick one lady who gets to survive beyond the end of the film. Men have a much lower survival rate. The gender trade-off, though, is that horror films see women as athletically faulty idiots who cannot run across a field without falling over. Sometimes it’s thanks to their high-heels. Sometimes they trip over a branch. But a lot of times gravity just seems to grab them and slam them down to Earth without provocation. It’s pretty much the only way we can buy a sprinting young person being outrun by a lumbering, giant psycho killer, so get used to it.

The morning it stumbles
Right in through the window
And this getting up early
Gets old anyway
And if you listen close dear
The crying that you hear
Is the nighttime lamenting
The start of the day
Lyle Lovett

Everyone and everything is interconnected in this universe. Stay pure of heart and you will see the signs. Follow the signs, and you will uncover your destiny.

All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.
Ernest Hemingway (via transientpublishing)
