I dream of painting and then I paint my dreams


'Madness is the inability to communicate your ideas. It's as if you were in a foreign country, able to see and understand everything that's going on around you, but incapable of explaining what you need to know or of being helped, because you don't understand the language the speak there. We've all felt that. And all of us, one way or another, are mad.'

- Veronika Decides To Die by Paulo Coehlo

You have two choices: to control your mind or to let your mind control you. You are already familiar with the latter experience, allowing yourself to be swept along by fears, neuroses, insecurity, for we all have self-destructive tendencies. Don’t confuse insanity with a loss of control.

— Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die (via mindfultraveling)
