If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business because we’d be cynical: “It’s going to be wrong,” or, “She’s going to hurt me,” or, “I’ve had a couple of bad love affairs before so therefore…”Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.
—Ray Bradbury, 1921-2012 (via outofthecountry)
