"What’s wrong with you? I asked myself. You are a happy person. You are an upbeat sort of person. Men smile at you on the subway, women ask you what shampoo you use. Cheer up for Christ’s sake, I told myself, relax, you’re fine, be happy, Girl. When I talk to myself I call myself Girl..."

 

Look at someone you love today,
for one minute,

as if you saw them for
the first time.

As if they were the first ray
of sunlight, caught by

the tender passion of your eye,
lighting up your whole world.

Ron Starbuck, Death (via hellanne)

You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.

John Green, Looking for Alaska (via observando)

Her heart was a secret garden and the walls were very high.

What is success? It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.
