“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

– Marie Curie

Anonymous asked: Hey I was just wondering if you recommend any place within the US to go during winter for two weeks? I'm planning my next trip, but there are just too many places to choose from. I don't want fancy vacations, in liking for adventure. :D

Maui, Hawaii, is one of the most beautiful places I went in my life. A lot of adventures, a lot of green, waterfalls, more green, sea everywhere, surf and beautiful people.

Anonymous asked: Do you read any female authors, every favorite book you listed was by a man (and mostly if not all white men). Or POC authors?

A lot of books I loved are written by women, like the The Bell Jar. J.K. Rowling is the one who introduced me to the world of books with Harry Potter.

Anonymous asked: How many countries have you traveled to? Where would you like to travel to, that you haven't been yet? One day when I get to travel, I may take your advice. What are the best museum, art, architecture, festivals, etc that you have seen or want to?

I went to Ecuador, Brazil, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, England, Thailand, United States. I think I am not forgetting anything.

“No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride…and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well…maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.”

– Hunter S. Thompson

“Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist-a master-and that is what Auguste Rodin was-can look at an old woman, protray her exactly as she is…and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be…and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart…no matter what the merciless hours have done to her. Look at her, Ben. Growing old doesn’t matter to you and me; we were never meant to be admired-but it does to them.”

– Robert A. Heinlein

“In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.”

– Leo Tolstoy

“I think I’ve discovered the secret of life — you just hang around until you get used to it.”

– Charles M. Schulz
