People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.

I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.
— Anaïs Nin (via observando)
Surely only boring people went in for conversations consisting of questions and answers. The art of true conversation consisted in the play of minds.
— Ved Mehta, All for Love (via observando)
