Inspiration and Life
I love my friends neither with
my heart nor with my mind.
Just in case heart might stop, mind can forget.
I love them with my soul.
Soul never stops or forgets.
Rumi
Never allow loneliness to drive you into the arms of somone you know you don’t belong with.
Unknown (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
I disregard the proportions, the measures, the tempo of the ordinary world. I refuse to live in the ordinary world as ordinary women. To enter ordinary relationships. I want ecstasy. I am a neurotic — in the sense that I live in my world. I will not adjust myself to the world. I am adjusted to myself.
Anais Nin
If you’re having to struggle & fight to hold onto someone or something…it might be time to just let go.
I have so much of you in my heart.
John Keats to Fanny Brawne, 10 July 1819. (via quotableq)
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves
Henry David Thoreau (via sophie-amelie)

Anais Nin
I’m staring out into that vacuum again from the back porch of my mind. The only thing that’s alive, I’m all there is. And I start attacking my vodka, stab the ice with my straw. My eyes have turned red as stoplights, you seem ready to walk. You know I’ll call you eventually when I want to talk, until then you’re invisible because there’s a switch that gets hit and it all stops making sense. In the middle of drinks maybe the fifth or sixth, I’m completely alone at a table of friends, I feel nothing for them,
I feel nothing.
Conor Oberst (via blua)
I don’t suppose I really know you very well - but I know you smell like the delicious damp grass that grows near old walls and that your hands are beautiful opening out of your sleeves and that the back of your head is a mossy sheltered cave when there is trouble in the wind and that my cheek just fits the depression in your shoulder.
Zelda Fitzgerald, in a letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald (via rainydaysandblankets)
There is no indignity in being afraid to die, but there is a terrible shame in being afraid to live
Alydon (The Daleks)
The highest form of ignorance is to reject something you know nothing about.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
It is never too late to be what we might have been.
George Eliot
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
George Bernard Shaw (via journolist)
Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
Oscar Wilde
Those who do not complain are never pitied.
