"That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest."
- Henry David Thoreau (via shtufff)
"Everybody should do in their lifetime, sometime, two things. One, is to consider death. To observe skulls and skeletons and to wonder what it will be like to go to sleep and never wake up. Ever. That is the most… is a very gloomy thing of contemplation, but it’s like manure. Just as manure fertilizes the plant and so on. So, the contemplation of death and the acceptance of death is very highly generative for creating life; you get wonderful things out of that."
- Alan Watts (via itsladygrey)
