"I think there is a point in everyone’s life where they make a decision - influenced by experiences and revelations and books and movies and family and friends they’ve dabbled in idealism and realism and there is a point - the culmination of everything you’ve done, and like a storm it soon passes as you pass into the eye of the storm and make that decision. Whether you become a realist or idealist, when you pass back into the storm it is calmer than it was before. Either with the hopeless romantics with their sentimental tendencies, or the realists who see sentimentality and think it a silly affair."
"Be unrealistic. Life itself is unrealistic. Your very existence is as random, impossible and unrealistic as it gets. Only unrealistic people accomplish extraordinary things."
Andrea Balt (via venuschild)
"Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism."
C.G. Jung (via wordsnquotes)
