"The secret of success is concentrating interest in life, interest in sports and good times, interest in your studies, interest in your fellow students, interest in the small things of nature, insects, birds, flowers, leaves, etc. In other words to be fully awake to everything about you & the more you learn the more you can appreciate & get a full measure of joy & happiness out of life."

For Jackson Pollock's birthday, a beautiful 1929 letter of life-advice to teenage Jackson from his dad.

"Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin - find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that that was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less."

Maya Angelou, letter to teenage self.

"One night I went for a walk by the sea along the empty shore. It was not gay, but neither was it sad – it was – beautiful. The deep blue sky was flecked with clouds of a blue deeper than the fundamental blue of intense cobalt, and others of a clearer blue, like the whiteness of the Milky Way. In the blue depth the stars were sparkling, greenish, yellow, white, pink, more brilliant, more sparklingly gemlike than at home – even in Paris: opals you might call them, emeralds, lapis lazuli, rubies, sapphires."

Vincent van Gogh

letter to Theo van Gogh, c. 2 June 1888, from Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer

Nothing – Endlessly (2,491 plays)

Love us gently
Stains on the sheets
Childhood blood that would soak through our jeans
Infinite Sun
Childhood love that was covered in mud
