[It’s] a look at light from several points of view. On one side it’s a powerful radiation emitted by the most distant stars in the universe, and also by our Sun; light floods everywhere in nature, from the largest things to the smallest, creating interesting and beautiful effects; humans always used light as a symbolic and spiritual element; and it’s an intriguing physical phenomenon deeply studied by science too.
"I believe a strong woman may be stronger than a man, particularly if she happens to have love in her heart. I guess a loving woman is indestructible."
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
"Where is the rule that says we can only fall in love with another human being with whom we engage in a sexual relationship? (…) There is no limit to what we can be hopelessly romantic about (…) Because even if your dedication proves difficult, or ultimately impossible to attain, the moments where you feel most alive will always be when you love with no regard for moderation."
Dreams I've Had (and Some I Haven't) →
The most interesting dreams to my mind have no obvious subject matter. They are like turning on the TV late at night and coming upon a scene from an old black and white film one has most likely never seen, though it seems vaguely familiar. (…) Of course, as we all know, trying to describe these kinds of dreams to someone else is a hopeless undertaking, since we are better at recounting the action in them than the complicated emotions they give rise to and that, to be honest, we don’t even understand ourselves. When one gets old, one doesn’t even try. The world must be full of people going about their business carrying around in their heads memories of unknown masterpieces of dream cinema that will never to be seen in any theater, but that were destined to be shown only once, and to an audience of one.
