A Girl You Should Date « nona merah

Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve. Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. Buy her another cup of coffee. It’s easy to date a girl who reads. She has to give it a shot somehow. Fail her. Why be frightened of everything that you are not? If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. You will propose on a hot air balloon. You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. Or better yet, date a girl who writes. – Rosemarie Urquico – Like this: Like Loading... Ludwig von Mises Institute.

A Beautiful Mess

Though, I'm not sure how cost effective it is if you keep buying more and more cloth napkins each year!

An Essay by Einstein

Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people -- first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy. A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving... "I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.

Somebody loves you if they call you out on your bullshit. Somebody loves you if they don't mind the quiet. Somebody loves you if they want you to be happy, even if that involves something that doesn't benefit them.
