When you’re choosing furniture for your home that’s supposed to express who you are, what you are also saying is you want other people to infer what you want them to infer.

Comfort and security are all well and good, but not at the cost of liberty, love and lustiness.

I was always with a single mom, and we never had schedules or anything. We were just Bohemian, us against the world, which was kind of great, but it certainly didn’t breed security.

I am carefree by nature but that doesn’t mean that I am careless or that I care less. I simply pass on passive aggressive. Why dodge bullets? This world is not a place for cowards. If we are going to shoot, then let’s freaking shoot straight. Energy is easily recognized and understood. I don’t make time anymore for people that I have to interpret beyond what they say and what they are really saying. It’s not my Aspie nature. It is my angel nature.

Rapunzel is a bit more relatable than the other princesses, especially because she doesn’t even know that she’s a princess until the very end of the movie.

I love ‘Somebody to Love’ by Queen and of course ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is one of my favorites, just because it makes everyone in the room go crazy. Everyone tries to sing along with it, and half the room gets it right and the other half gets it wrong. ― Faith Hill

I thought of the cool, fresh air of the city I’d always dreamed of living in. The art museums and trolleys and the mysterious fog that blanketed it. I could almost smell the cappuccinos I’d planned to drink in bohemian cafes or hear the indie music in the bookstores I would spend my free time in. I pictured the friends I’d make, my kindred art people, and the dorm room I was supposed to move into. ― Heather Demetrios, I’ll Meet You There

All night, after the exhausting games of canasta, we would look over the immense sea, full of white-flecked and green reflections, the two of us leaning side by side on the railing, each of us far away, flying in his own aircraft to the stratospheric regions of his own dreams. There we understood that our vocation, our true vocation, was to move for eternity along the roads and seas of the world. Always curious, looking into everything that came before our eyes, sniffing out each corner but only ever faintly–not setting down roots in any land or staying long enough to see the substratum of things the outer limits would suffice. ― Ernesto Guevara, The Motorcycle Diaries: Notes on a Latin American Journey
