"The great leaders of history are always those who refuse to bend to naked kings: Mahatma Gandhi, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Nelson Mandela, Rigoberta Menchu, Aung San Suu Kyi, Dorothy Day, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman. The great leaders of history have always been those who refused to barter their ideal for the sake of their personal interests and who rebelled against the lies of their times. If you want to be a real leader, if you want to give a new kind of leadership, you cannot live to get the approval of a system, you must live to save the soul of it."

for the sake of pleasure, A curated collection of all beauty I obsess over. Beauty is truth, truth beauty. I believe in it and try to live it. But the reality of beauty is that the world is also very real. I hope to capture those moments of clarity, whether they are easy to comprehend or uneasy to look at. Thanks for visiting.
