“To be great, be whole; exclude
Nothing, exaggerate nothing that is you.
Be whole in everything. Put all you are
Into the smallest thing you do.
The whole moon gleams in every pool.
It rides so high.”—Fernando Pessoa, To be great, be whole (via teachingliteracy)
“Work on a good piece of writing proceeds on three levels: a musical one, where it is composed; an architectural one, where it is constructed; and finally, a textile one, where it is woven.”—Walter Benjamin, One-Way Street and Other Writings (via mythologyofblue)
