- Vita Sackville-West, from a letter to Virginia Woolf dated January 29, 1927 (via slutstatus)
Ya know, I really like the phrase “rise and shine,” but not at all in the context it is usually used in. “Get up and do well today” is one thing, but “rise from the ashes and be brilliant” makes me much happier. Ascend from who you once were. Be better. Shimmer brilliantly in whatever light is cast on you.
And do well today.
