Welcome Small Pleasures


Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures.

loving someone deeply gives you courage.

that places harmony in one's life.

To love. To be loved.
To never forget your own insignificance.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence
and the vulgar disparity of life around you.
To seek joy in the saddest places.
To pursue beauty to its lair.
To never simplify what is complicated
or complicate what is simple.
To respect strength, never power.
Above all, to watch. To try to understand.
To never look away. And never, never, to forget.
- Arundhati Roy

you will never have to worry about keeping secrets.
Be a person with no secrets to keep.
