I think people would be happier if they admitted things more often. In a sense we are all prisoners of some memory, or fear, or disappointment—we are all defined by something we can’t change.
Simon Van Booy, The Illusion of Separateness (via seulray)
Just be human. Forget everything and just be human. Be wierd one day and talk to someone you’ve never talked to just to talk to them. You never know what beautiful things will come from that.
My daddy (he always has the right thing to say)
to be nobody but yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
e.e. cummings (via adventuringsoul)
Stories you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.
Neil Gaiman (via wordsthat-speak)
