"Aborigines openly and unaffectedly converse with everything in their surroundings—trees, tools, animals, rocks—as if all things have an intelligence deserving of respect … The Aborigines believe that communication happens primarily on nonverbal levels, flowing as continually as life itself."
—Robert Lawlor, “Voices of the First Day”
Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.
— Benjamin Disraeli (via larmoyante)
