"When you consider things like the stars, our affairs don’t seem to matter very much, do they?" -V. Woolf
"I am the lover of uncontained and immortal beauty. In the wilderness, I find something more dear and connate than in streets or villages. In the tranquil landscape,and especially in the distant line of the horizon, man beholds somewhat as beautiful as his own nature." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
"I had the wind knocked out of me,
but never the hurricane."
"When you realize how perfect everything is,
you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky."
"In our day we need to recapture a sense of mystery. Pascal made the distinction between a mystery and a problem, and it is one we have tended to forget. A problem is an obstacle, a conundrum, something that can in principle be formulated and solved. A mystery is utterly different. It lies beyond us, it is too rich for our understanding. It can be entered into, explored, even inhabited; but it can never be exhausted or fathomed."
Hi, I'm Victoria. :) I'm a grounded dreamer, optimist, and lover of the world we live in... an INFP. This blog is a love letter to words, music, design, inspiration, and anything I might find to be lovely. :)
