One time back in like October or something I wrote a song and had a little melody to go along with it and took to singing it all the time. Now, every once in a while, I’ll start singing it and realize what a catchy little tune it is and wonder where the hell I got it from for a good ten minutes.
“I don’t want to live – I want to love first and live incidentally.”—Zelda Fitzgerald’s 1919 love letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald, shortly before their wedding, found in Letters of a Nation. (via explore-blog)
“It’s beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside.”—(via ephemeralbright)
“Sometimes, no matter how much it hurts, no matter what we leave behind, we must move forward to the uncertainty that awaits us. Sometimes people leave us. And sometimes we leave too. And maybe the people we know, became the people we knew. But in life there comes a time, that we are ready to know them again. Until then, we must patiently wait. For life is a mystery, an adventure a puzzle, waiting to be found, to be followed, to be fixed.”—(via moonlight-path)
Sometimes I want to say one thing to prove a point but that thing contains things I don’t want to reveal so I go about it in a roundabout way and then nobody understands and my need for that secrecy makes me like a psychopath even though what I want to say is so perfectly evident in my head.
it’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice and i for one certainly didn’t sign up for that
Every time someone asks me if I have a boyfriend and I respond “no”, people always feel the need to congratulate me and proceed to complain about how shitty men are. Literally all of them. They never even stop to wonder at the reasons I am single. It’s so shallow and judgmental and pointless. If all those men that these girls date are such dickwads, then said girls should try A) Not dating them, B) Raising their standards, maybe, C) Try getting to know them a little better before they just dive in, or D) Realize that maybe the common denominator in their string of terrible relationships has been them. I feel like guys get so much fucking shit in relationships, when so many girls I’ve spoken to are just psycho ungrateful bitches, which is like the girl version of arrogant self-centered douche. I’m not saying that one or the other is always at fault, but I hate this generic gender-blanketing shit. For these people I’ve spoken to, they all automatically assume I’m single because I’ve experienced some terrible breakup or shitty guys or something. I’m single because I’m absurdly picky and I don’t open up or trust anyone and I don’t even give most people the time of day. There are spectacular guys in the world, just like there are spectacular girls.
“Life is capable of driving you out of your mind. The way it all comes down these days, it’s some kind of miracle if you’re not insane. People have become separated from their bodies. They are no longer whole.”—
- Henry Rollins (Taken from his article The Iron found here)
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”—Dr. Seuss (via sweetkisseshappytrails)
