"All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean.

-John F Kennedy

“You may grow weary of people always telling you to stop being so concerned with falling in love, but never grow tired of the cross; that is the place that a God came down to show you that you are loved, more than anyone else can ever possibly love you.”—T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)

What if.”—T.B. LaBerge // I Hope. (via blissfulbeardsdoitbest)

“…When you’re struck by inspiration and want to build something, you should use whatever you know. Trying to learn something new will kill that inspiration and the frustration of not being able to build what you want will kill the project. Learning new things is reserved for times where you want to expand your creative sphere, need to solve a problem you can’t solve with what already you know, or are feeling stuck/uninspired with your current toolkit.”—
I post this because Vargas is one of those rare people capable of independently executing ideas, which she does on a regular basis. This post not only has good advice, but some interesting insight into her process, and how she remains capable of constantly learning and producing new things.
“If you can find a passion at a young age, somewhere between fifteen and thirty, if you can find that passion, I can pretty much guarantee you that you can be sixty-five and still love that passion and still have a reason to dance out of bed and down the hall every morning.”—
