"We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about."
Charles Kingsley (via nudewave)
The older I get, the more deeply I understand the importance of enthusiasm. I have no time for people who can’t get excited about things. I’m naturally skeptical and inclined to question my own passions, but the important thing is that those passions exist and can stand up to rational examination, not because they’re rational in themselves but because they prove that reason isn’t everything.(via modernfoppery)
