A Couple Tumblr Things

When you follow the “right” blogs, you’ll find things you likely would not have found on your own.

“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel
responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is
bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the
Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”

— Andrew Boyd

“I have this weird theory that some people are drawn to each other
because their atoms were near each other when the universe was created
and over time the same atoms keep coming back together.”

So, for better or for worse, the people you meet by chance and by chase will always be the people you end up knowing.  But then, does circumstance get in the way of or pave the way for these meetings?  In business dealings, is the fifth company you start the one that finally clicks?  In romantic relationships, do you luck out on your first try or do you somehow know that all the members of your inner circle were there from the very beginning?   On the other hand, do you not find your own until much later after repeated trial-and-errors?

What about those who feel no inner or outer pull towards this avenue?  Perhaps the atoms close to you ended up in the matinee idols you adore or the authors you read or even the animals you love.
