Why do, we meet the people we meet? Why do, we fall in love with the people we meet? Why do, we hurt the people we love? Why do, we love again?
A reply from pinkyanpbol

The only reason anyone does anything is because they think they will feel better in having, doing or releasing anything.

Meet the First Woman to Win Math’s Most Prestigious Prize

As an 8-year-old, Maryam Mirzakhani used to tell herself stories about the exploits of a remarkable girl. Every night at bedtime, her heroine would become mayor, travel the world or fulfill some other grand destiny.

Today, Mirzakhani — a 37-year-old mathematics professor at Stanford University — still writes elaborate stories in her mind. The high ambitions haven’t changed, but the protagonists have: They are hyperbolic surfaces, moduli spaces and dynamical systems. In a way, she said, mathematics research feels like writing a novel. “There are different characters, and you are getting to know them better,” she said. “Things evolve, and then you look back at a character, and it’s completely different from your first impression.”

"Through my own experience-and that of countless others that I have shared-I have come to believe that creativity is our true nature, that blocks are unnatural thwarting of a process at once as normal as and miraculous as the blossoming of a flower at the end of a slender green stem. I have found this process of making spiritual contact to be both simple and straightforward."
Julia Cameron (via bohomia90)
