Patrick House discusses the experiences of those cured of blindness with M.I.T. professor Pawan Sinha:
"Sinha believes these first moments for the newly sighted are blurry, incoherent, and saturated by brightness—like walking into daylight with dilated pupils—and swirls of colors that do not make sense as shapes or faces or any kind of object."
“What’s terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don’t need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well you’re capable of better.”—Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook (via kushandwizdom)
“It’s such a shame that “playing it cool” is a big part of flirting. I say, if you like someone, make it known. Forget about looking eager, reply quickly, and just straight up tell them that you’ve been waiting for hours to finish work just so you could speak to then again. Because when you’re at the beginning and everything is new and exciting, just speaking to somebody all day everyday is one of the most magical steps forward. Don’t worry about looking ridiculous or sounding silly. People waste so much time hiding away what needs to be said before it’s too late. Just be honest while you can, no holding back, and see what happens.”—(via the-taintedtruth)
