About transcendentwhispers:

Beyond the edge of the light, at a place where your laughter and tears have run out, is where your humanity awaits. There you can, perhaps, live in stillness.

The world goes fast, but we go slow here.

About myself:

In my vain moments, I fashion myself as a Curator of Aesthetics. ;) Otherwise, I am female, 23, a thinker and a dreamer, a student, and an amalgamy of forces.

I hope that my tumblr constantly reminds me of the aesthetic of the beauty in reality. Finally, I would be honoured if you would share your thoughts with me.

quotevadis:

“The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.”
— Sophie Scholl, a German student, active within the White Rosenon-violentresistance group in Nazi Germany. She was convicted of high treason after having been found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich with her brother Hans. As a result, they were both executed by guillotine.

Safe? From what?
