Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
Edgar Allan Poe (via feellng)
"Damn the rules, it’s the Feeling that Counts. You play all twelve notes in your solo anyway." John Coltrane
That humanity at large will ever be able to dispense with Artificial Paradises seems very unlikely. Most men and women lead lives at the worst so painful, at the best so monotonous, poor and limited that the urge to escape, the longing to transcend themselves if only for a few moments, is and has always been one of the principal appetites of the soul.
Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception (via silentlyexposed)
If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.
William Blake (via greenisthecolourilike)
There’s only one corner of the universe that you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.
Aldous Huxley (via rashadsays)
