"My altars are the mountains and the ocean."
— Lord Byron (via chasinglinnaeus)
"Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it toward others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world."
"Being solitary is being alone well: being alone immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your own presence rather than of the absence of others. Because solitude is an achievement."
— ~Alice Koller (via artpropelled)
