"Every introvert alive knows the exquisite pleasure of stepping from the clamor of a party into the bathroom and closing the door."
Sophia Dembling - The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World (via dianekrugers)
When two souls, which have sought each other for however long in the throng, have found each other, when they have seen that they are matched, are in sympathy and compatible, in a word, that they are alike; there is then established forever between them a union, fiery and pure as they themselves are, a union which begins on earth and continues and continues forever in (eternity). - Victor Hugo
True professionalism implies evolution, if not revolution
