To embrace a “thing” or a “person” in their essence means to love them, to favour them. Thought in a more original way such favouring means the bestowal of their essence as a gift. Such favouring is the proper essence of enabling, which not only can achieve this or that but also can let something essentially unfold in its provenance, that is, let it be.
— Martin Heidegger - Letter on Humanism (via fuckyeahexistentialism)
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.
— Kurt Vonnegut (via godmoves)

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.
— John Muir
