“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” —Paulo Coelho (via misswallflower)
“Strange as it may seem, I still hope for the best, even though the best, like an interesting piece of mail, so rarely arrives, and even when it does it can be lost so easily.” —Lemony Snicket (via katyjean)
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” —Neil Gaiman (via evereven)
“You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget.” —Cormac McCarthy, The Road (via coffeeblossoms)
“A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.” —Oscar Wilde (via libraryland)
“But love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.” —Paulo Coelho (via slekes)
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
“Everybody is nothing until you love them.” —Tennessee Williams (via misswallflower)
