eternal illusion

“Life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

eternally loved
"eternally loved"

“What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness, and say, 'This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned and you with it, dust of the dust!' Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer, 'Never have I heard anything more divine'?”

~Friedrich Nietzsche

- Mevlana Rumi

Lovely jewelry. I'm not sure of the quote though, thinking of living my entire life over is a hard one. There are parts I would like to forget, but then they are probably the times when I grew the most.

These pieces are all just gorgeous. I especially love the top piece - not sure if it's a bracelet or choker - but it is beyond beautiful! I like the quotes too, very thought-provoking.
