Art affirms all that is best in man—hope, faith, love, beauty, prayer…What he dreams of and what he hopes for…What is art?…Like a declaration of love: the consciousness of our dependence on each other. A confession. An unconscious act that none the less reflects the true meaning of life—love and sacrifice.

Andrei Tarkovsky

"To be a Christian is to be transparent and truthful and vulnerable and brutally honest"

(via sjmattson)

"Avoid “faith” that promotes political might over spiritual strength, legal enforcement over personal choice, conscription over evangelism, punishment over grace, fear over hope, and control over love."

(via sjmattson)

Así, como soy, ¡tengan paciencia!
¡Vayánse al diablo sin mí,
O dejen irme solitario al diablo!
¿Para qué habríamos de ir juntos?

- F. Pessoa

"La única fealdad es la pobreza de humildad y la verdadera belleza es la exageración en el amor."

La belleza y la fealdad, Joseph Kapone (via el-escritor-sombrilla)
