“I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone and smoking a cigarette, when they smirk, the way they half smile, the way they try and hold back tears, the way when their face says they want to say something but can’t, the way they look at someone they want or love… I love the way people look when they do these things. It’s… beautiful.”— Unknown (via soaringaboveitall)
“Don’t wish me happiness. I don’t expect to be happy all the time… It’s gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all.”—Anne Morrow Lindbergh (via elicec)
“When a baby comes into the world, its hands are clenched, right? Like this?” He made a fist. “Why? Because a baby, not knowing any better, wants to grab everything, to say the whole world is mine. But when an old person dies, how does he do so? With his hands open. Why? Because he has learned his lesson.” “What lesson?” I asked. He stretched open his empty fingers. “We can take nothing with us.”—Mitch Albom (via germanytogermany)
”Ето защо е толкова важно да позволим на някои неща да си отидат, да ги пуснем на свобода, да се избавим от тях. Хората трябва да осъзнаят, че никой не играе с белязани карти, понякога печелим, понякога губим. Не се надявай да ти върнат нещо, не се надявай да признаят усилията ти, да открият гениалността ти, да разберат любовта ти. Не се колебай да приключиш с даден етап, не от гордост, от некадарност или надменност, а защото просто не се вмества в живота ти. Затвори вратата, смени диска, почисти дома си, изтупай праха. Престани да бъдеш този, който си бил и се превърни в този, който си всъщност.” - Паулу Коелю
Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.
“The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody’s fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.”—Katherine Mansfield (via livefortravel)
“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.”—Douglas Coupland (via misswallflower)
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”—Albert Einstein (Thank you, lovespulse)
