And Now You May Commence

"Pinocchio went out into the world filled with good intentions, with vision, he went ready to do all the things he dreamed, but Pinocchio was pulled this way and that, he was distracted, he faltered, he made mistakes, but he kept on.... Pinocchio, in the end, became himself, because the little flame inside him, no matter what crap he went through, would not be extinguished."

Patti Smith by way of UnBeige


  1. Good thing my nose doesn't grow, from every time I've lied to myself, otherwise I'd be tripping over it and getting it stuck in doors and windows.

    Time to become myself...

  2. "no matter what crap he went through..."

    Hey, I could so be Pinocchio! I'm so tired of being puppet.

  3. Love the quote. Never seen Pinocchio and crap in the same paragraph!

  4. Isn't that what we all go through? Very cool quote.

    But very random picture. What's she holding?
