"You could hear the wind in the leaves,
and on the wind traveled the screams
of the kids on the playground in the distance,
the little kids figuring out how to be alive,
how to navigate a world that was not built for them
by navigating a playground that was."
- Hazel, The Fault in Our Stars, John Green
"I don't remember the line
but it's something like Anna having the Whitmanesque revelation
that the definition of humanness
is the opportunity
to marvel at the majesty of creation
for some reason I decided to feel really hopeful.
Not about survival specifically,
but I felt like Anna does in the book,
that feeling of excitement and gratitude
about just being able to marvel at it all."
- Augustus, The Fault in Our Stars, John Green

"It seems to me that there’s a moment when you press the shutter release on the camera when the person you are, the person holding the camera, says yes. Every time you take a picture, you’re saying yes to what you see. There should be a degree of consciousness about who you are in the world at that moment, a kind of integrated consciousness. It’s not blind luck, so if one can find what it is that makes you conscious, what gives you the pleasure of being alive at that moment, I feel that is what leads you to your own identity. Because in the long run, your individual identity will be revealed by the strength of the photographs you make in one year, ten years, 15 years—there’s a string. They’re like little jewels on the string and they carry all the messages that you were excited by when the world spoke to you. I think that’s what happens and I’m sure you’ve experienced this yourself. Somehow you have that gasp come over you—you think, Oh, oh, now! You raise the camera and maybe the thing has gone by now or maybe it’s just unfolding in front of you and you intercept it at the right moment. That right moment is your moment of being conscious. So I would say to young artists that are beginning, try to understand when you’re fully conscious and accept your identity being awakened by the world around you. If you listen to that, you’ll have a singular vision—it will be your vision."

"I guess I consider myself an experiential spender. Money is a tool that can gain you new experiences, it can also buy you 'things' but which is richer? I constantly have to remind myself of this, it's easy to get caught up in wanting new things. If I could do anything for the kids, I would give them all plane tickets... I want them to learn all about the world and everyone in it. The more we know, the less we are afraid ya know? I hope you feel that energy in the photos I create... in the adventurous spirit, cultural style mixes, and diverse casting that are very true to my vision of the world. I hope to share the little bit of knowledge I've gained. I want to learn so much more."
- Devyn Galindo, Photographer

"Life is full of stories. Or maybe life is only stories."
- Jiko, A Tale for the Time Being, Ruth Ozeki
"You need to be a little bit crazy.
Crazy is the price you pay for having an imagination.
It's your superpower.
Tapping into the dream.
It's a good thing, not a bad thing."
- Oliver, A Tale for the Time Being, Ruth Ozeki
