“A photograph is a most important document, and there is nothing more damning than to go down to posterity than a silly, foolish smile caught and fixed forever.”

Mark Twain, agreeing with the general sentiment held for most of history that smiling in portraits and photographs was odd and slightly indecent  (via historical-nonfiction)

At some point in your life, you’ve experienced magic.

It might have appeared as a sudden spark of unexplainable creativity, the lyrics of a deeply moving poem, the chemistry between two individuals meeting for the first time, the notes of a concert, the dedicated synchronization of a routine, the innovative strokes of an artist’s brush…

An overwhelming sense of connection bound you in the moment. You felt inspired, thrilled, advanced, even enlightened.
