It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. Sea of Stars caused by microscopic organisms called bioluminescent phytoplankton - Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives.
"Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water. And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes you cannot even breathe deeply, and the night sky is no home, and you have cried yourself to sleep enough times that you are down to your last two percent, but nothing is infinite, not even loss. You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day you are going to find yourself again.” - Finn Butler
thanks to Lost at E Minor for this "Imagine a spot of night swimming at your local beach, only to have the shoreline and waves glow an ethereal blue at any sign of agitation. The images here are from Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives, a place where a concentrated population exists, much to the delight of photographers who snapped these pictures. Bioluminescent Phytoplankton concentrations are a field of study all to itself – potentially harmful, always stunning."
