We are our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves.
Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker (via paperimages)
One of my favorite quotes.
Stop waiting for the right person to come into your life. Be the right person to come to someone’s life.
— Leo Babauta (via myquotelibrary)
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically - to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.’
— Stephen R Covey (via kari-shma)
You are beautiful not for the shape of the vessel, but for the volume of the soul it carries.
— Unknown (via ghostshrimp)
Your life isn’t out there waiting, so don’t think all you have to do is find it and get it. No, your life is right here. And, yeah, it sucks. Lives usually do. So if you want things to change, you don’t need to get a life. You need to get off your a$$.
— Will Grayson, Will Grayson (via myquotelibrary)
They’ve promised that dreams can come true - but forgot to mention that nightmares are dreams, too.
— Oscar Wilde (via catchingelephants)
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
— Michael Jackson (via ahorton92)
He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
— Albert Einstein (via flik1206)
There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?
— Rumi (via myquotelibrary)
