“I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope, which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”—Dr. Seuss (via infinitebutterflies) (via un-tout-petit-coeur)
We are fragmented into so many different aspects. We don’t know who we really are, or what aspects of ourselves we should identify with or believe in. So many contradictory voices, dictates, and feelings fight for control over our inner lives that we find ourselves scattered everywhere, in all directions, leaving nobody at home. ~ Sogyal Rinpoche
“Love is like energy. It can never be created nor destroyed…it is just always there. You just have to realize that fact and you have to learn that as soon as you stopped loving him in the way you did that love left to somewhere else. Now all you have to do is find out where that love went. That love went to whoever the next person in your life will be. That next person could be one of your friends or someone you might dislike, you just have to find that out.”—Ian Philpot (via justbesplendid)
“Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can; spend all your money; tell someone how you feel; tell someone off; speak out; dance in the pouring rain; hold someones hand; comfort a friend; pig out; fall asleep watching the sun come up; smile until your face hurts; don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all live in the moment because when you look back one day, knowing you have no regrets, thats what’s going to make you smile. Because life is a gift to be opened, not a problem to be solved. So go out, party hard, trip and fall, do whatever you please. Because it’s your life and every second is one you’ll never get back.”—Unknown (via thresca) (via un-tout-petit-coeur)
“Any true pleasure comes with a price.
We drink too much, we wake up hungover, we eat too much, we pack on the pounds, you enjoy one moment of lust and you live a lifetime of guilt. Yeah, what feels good comes with a cost. At the end of the day, i suppose it’s just a matter of figuring out how much you are willing to pay.”—Eastwick; 1x05. (via yellowtulip)
“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.”—Albert Ellis (via justbesplendid)
“When you love someone so much and that person is away from you, sometimes it literally feels like you can’t breathe, as if your body is aching for air. And then that person walks into the room, and all that ache inside of you, all that longing, dissolves and you feel yourself breathe again.”—Diane Les Becquets (via littlemiss)
