i believe that there’s always a balanced amount of input/output; equilibrium governs everything. some people are more expressive and therefore less reflective. that’s why i’m always more interested in the quiet ones because i know there’s an entire secret world embodied in a whirlwind of thoughts that most people aren’t privy to. it’s special.
it makes those individuals so much harder to talk to, to relate to. however, that’s when you know it’s going to be worth something to try harder. the more difficult the challenge, the bigger the reward.
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this”—Henry David Thoreau
