347/365 – Imagining the Future (John Green)

“Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (…)
You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth,
thinking about how you’ll escape it one day,
 and how awesome it will be,
 and imagining that future keeps you going,
but you never do it.
You just use the future to escape the present.”
– John Green
(Looking for Alaska)

340/365 – Understanding Life (John Lennon)

“When I was 5 years old,
my mother always told me that happiness
was the key to life.
When I went to school,
they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down ‘happy’.
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment,
and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
– John Lennon
