"I LOVE this quote. It is such a powerful description of being a woman, yes…but simply of being human. Feel it all around you. Don’t let others shush you because they don’t want to feel the aches and joys of the world." (quote by Zooey Deschanel)
there is truth in this. but not as much truth as it implies. what we photograph is what we find beautiful or thrilling or heartbreakingly stunning. do we fear losing beauty? or do we simply want to hold on to it? is there a difference?
“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” ― Benjamin Mee, We Bought a Zoo
