Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot … There’s a quality of legend about freaks. Like a person in a fairy tale who stops you and demands that you answer a riddle. Most people go through life dreading they’ll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They’ve already passed their test in life. They’re aristocrats. — Diane Arbus in Forty-One False Starts by Janet Malcolm. (via somethingchanged)

the ones who let you in, even when the mess is overwhelming
Marlon Brando and Francis Ford Coppola.
I didn’t mean to denigrate thoughts, which are as important as feelings. But sometimes the best work comes from a place in oneself that operates deeper than conscious thought. For instance, I have a pet bunny and a pet cat, and some of the stories were about them. I thought, “My bunny and cat are really cute, I should write about them.” So that’s what I mean by a thought. Whereas the feeling I had when I was writing the story was really complicated, all about the sadness of being oneself and about how difficult life is and about our striving and what it all means. It was a complicated emotion. I think when you write in that state, you’re operating from a much more interesting and universal intelligence — An Interview With Sheila Heti, Who Writes For Both Children And Adults | The Hairpin (via somethingchanged)
