"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget."
— Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living (via feellng)
"If it was meant to last, it would have."
— Red (Orange Is The New Black)
"Do not spend your life searching for a place to call home. Make the bones in your skeleton the only structure you need."
— Haley Hendrick (via brawn)
Let there be mud on your clothes, nails in your boots, ink on your skin, pain deep inside you. Let it grow and don’t be afraid.
Start with your own story.

"My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart."
— Maya Angelou (via psych-facts)
this is very important.
