I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
Roald Dahl (via lexestrex)

Jorge Luis Borges tells it like it is.
He held equally provocative opinions about writing – but, then again, those were far better-deserved.
