Do not confuse ‘duty’ with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect.
Robert A. Heinlein (via observando)

apothnesko:

By the end of 2013 I had the opportunity to visit Arles, where van Gogh lived for some time. Here are some of the results of this trip.

A Clear Midnight

This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,  Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,  
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou  lovest best.
.
Night, sleep, death and the stars.
.
~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Hope and Memory have one daughter and her name is Art, and she has built her dwelling far from the desperate field where men hang out their garments upon forked boughs to be banners of battle. O beloved daughter of Hope and Memory, be with me for a little.
